Stockport, UK Capital and Centric Limited

Project details

Our designs for a mixed use 253-home development at Weir Mill, Stockport were submitted for planning and listed building consent in 2021. The plans, for developer Capital & Centric, include the restoration of the mill buildings and the construction of two new buildings to create a thriving new community in the town.

The Grade II listed former cotton mill will feature a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as 24,000 sq ft of commercial space across the existing and new buildings. The adjoining West Shed is intended as a relaxed and flexible co-working space, set amongst the amazing brick vaulted ceilings.

The designs incorporate spaces for independent businesses, such as shops, café-bars or delis, as well as a public space looking out across the River Mersey. The riverside zone, which would include a pontoon, could be used as a venue for street markets, DJ sets and live music events. Weavers Square, a new public space, will create a flexible venue for markets and events, and is located next to the Grade II* listed Stockport Viaduct, giving people the opportunity to experience the scale of the amazing structure up close. The square will feature retained cast-iron columns from the site’s former weavers’ shed, while West Courtyard, another of the development’s outdoor spaces, provides a green oasis for residents.
