Stanhope PLC joins January 2018 retail panel at Future Cities Forum
Stanhope PLC will be speaking at our January forum to be held at RIBA, on adding cultural elements to support retail innovation. The firm will join Benoy and Cushman & Wakefield to discuss the future of town centre shopping regeneration.
Martyn Chase, Director of Stanhope PLC, spoke at our hotel, museum and retail research round table in 2016, seen here in the video above with Oxford City Council and Make Architects. Please watch the film which explores issues of culture and the high street.
Bracknell Forest Council, Chief Executive, Tim Wheadon, will also be speaking at our January 2018 forum about the development of The Lexicon - Bracknell town centre's new shopping centre and Martyn will touch on Stanhope as developer of the 2010 Bracknell Waitrose store as part of the town's regeneration of retail. Stanhope reports that the store was constructed to high sustainable standards, achieving BREEAM Outstanding for both the shell and fit out elements and completed in 14 months. L&G and Schroders were partners in the project.
Working on the redevelopment of one of England's oldest cities, Stanhope has also developed Hereford's £90 million Old Market - the first major retail project in the city for 25 years. It is located on the site of Hereford's former livestock market and stretches over a 300,000 square foot open-air space. It includes 18 retail units, 8 restaurants and new public squares. Leisure accounts for 21% of the scheme with a six-screen Odeon Cinema, providing a boost to the city's evening economy.
In a separate project, Stanhope has worked with the Local Authority to promote a major town centre retail led regeneration scheme to revitalise the Maltings area in Salisbury, Wiltshire, with a mix of uses.
