Rochdale Riverside – A scheme update: 2019

Now that it’s 2019, we’re officially one year away from celebrating project completion!

For those of you who don’t know, Rochdale Riverside is a brand-new retail and leisure district that’s coming to Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Developed by Genr8 with Willmott Dixon managing the construction, the space will bring a huge new consumer market to the region and hopes to drive investment throughout the borough.

Earlier last year we posted a blog update on our website to inform everyone about the ongoings of the development, so we thought it was about time we gave you another one!


Current projects and timelines

After a year of work, we’re proud to finish the ground remediation and piling across the entire site – from the North Retail Block to the South.

As many of you know, one of the key tenants we’ve secured for Rochdale Riverside is M&S, who will act as our anchor tenant. The foundations are ongoing presently which will be followed by the steel erection.

Over at the Leisure Block, work is driving forward with the roofing, cladding, blockwork, curtain walling and glazing, whilst the South Retail Block, which will include Boots & JD Sports, is undergoing floor construction, roofing and blockwork.

And anyone who’s been past the site recently will have noticed that the steel frame for Reel Cinema reached completion in late 2018, allowing contractors to begin work on the North side of the site!


Who’s coming to Rochdale Riverside?

Many of our spaces have already been taken up by leading retail and food & beverage brands, these include:

  • M&S
  • JD Sports
  • Boots
  • River Island

These are being joined by an inspiring public realm, a six-screen cinema – the well-known and much-loved Reel Cinema – and a spacious car park.

Our agents Cheetham Mortimer and Lambert Smith Hampton are in numerous discussions with our next occupiers, so keep an eye out for our next release!
