A retail, office and residential development located in the core of a historic city

Site area
7,630 m² (82,128 ft²)

Floor area
10,785 m² (116,088 ft²)


New pedestrian streets connect the adjoining high street to Market Cross Square, a new public space at the centre of the development

The new square, an open two-tiered public space, is designed to be capable of full enclosure, but the naturally ventilated open space has proved successful in retail terms and is seen as a natural extension of the adjoining city streets

Surrounded by historic landmarks, including protected structures such as the old City Wall, the site required a sensitive approach and close negotiation with planning authorities
