The development includes a new 60 bed hotel for Premier Inn, 35,000 sq ft of BREEAM Excellent offices, a new bus interchange as well as restaurants and coffee shops. Occupiers include Network Rail, Cummings Mellor, Starbucks and Turtle Bay Restaurants. Plans for a second office building have been approved by the local planning authority.
The scheme was supported with funds from ERDF and Growing Places. The resultant investments were purchased by Legal and General and Lancashire County Pension Fund.
