As anyone who passes our Rochdale Riverside scheme can tell, the development is coming along quickly and a lot of progress is being made every day.
Due for completion in 2020, Rochdale Riverside will comprise of a stunning retail and leisure offering with 22 units available – many of which have already been taken up by leading retail and food & beverage brands – plus an inspiring public realm, a six-screen cinema and a car park.
Due to the progress of our scheme, we thought we’d give you a quick update about Rochdale Riverside’s development, how we’ve been spreading the good word, and what you can look forward to in the coming months.
Progress on site
Last month we were delighted to have our official steel signing ceremony take place on-site. Our construction team at Willmott Dixon have been working towards this milestone for several months, and representatives from the council and contractor gathered on site to mark the completion of the steel frame for the six-screen cinema building.
Now, Willmott Dixon has completed the site foundations and work will soon be able to start on the north side of the site, which will feature a 50,000 sq ft M&S.
As well as this, a major road that was closed temporarily for construction work is now due to reopen this month (October), leaving commuters in and out of Rochdale with greater access to the town.
It’s all systems go!
In September the Genr8 team visited Revo 2018 in Manchester Central, exhibiting our development and meeting with prospective tenants and interested parties. The team had a fruitful exhibition and have added to our list of live targets.
Not ones to rest, the team was also invited to a Rochdale Ambassadors morning in the town centre, alongside the council and influential business people across the borough. Genr8 Managing Director, Mike Smith, spoke to the 100-strong audience about the importance of our development and the privilege of having such a strong social platform to help spread positive Rochdale-based news. We have a lot of fervent supports of our scheme, and that’s only set to grow.
