S I Sealy appointed to three major projects on the Merseyway Redevelopment Plan
Adlington Walk, a covered area off the main shopping mall at Merseyway linking to Chestergate and Stockport Old Town, is the first stage of the redevelopment plans. It will incorporate new flexible spaces, enhanced customer facilities, prayer rooms, baby change areas, quiet spaces, and a new stair and lift core bringing people from the rooftop car park to the centre via a hotel-lobby style entrance.
StockRoom is a future-focused community and public-facing services hub that will repurpose 47,000 sq. ft of retail space around Adlington Walk and will include bespoke spaces for a range of new businesses and services. It aims to celebrate the town’s culture and creativity, support the local economy, and promote health and well-being. The BHS Refurbishment, which will house amongst others, JD Sports and Poundland, aims to create a more modern retail space for the identified tenants, supporting the wider regeneration project and boosting retail in the area.
These projects form part of the Merseyway Redevelopment Plan led by AEW Architects, which comprises new shopfronts, landscaping and public realm improvements to bring new visitors into the area to support the vitality of the town centre.
