A new landmark development to deliver a standalone building for the John Lewis Partnership to house adjacent but separate John Lewis at home and Waitrose store.
The site lies on the town-side edge of the 65-acre Basing View regeneration masterplan site being developed by Muse Developments in partnership with Basingstoke and Dean Borough Council. This first development as part of the masterplan will deliver over 75,00sqft of retail space providing a “blue chip” retailer so boosting the wider Basingstoke retail offer.
The project involves a first phase of enabling works which includes relocation of a local road and the associate major utility diversions therein as well as the resulting highway retailing structures all designed by Cundall. The second phase being the store construction following major cut and fill regrading of existing site levels and land retention with significant retaining walls. The regrading facilitates the use of a rooftop car park for over 400 cars with easy access from the road network and travelators giving shoppers rapid access to the stores.
The new building will create an iconic gateway to the regenerated Basing View site, giving it significant urban presence within the town centre.
The existing town centre of Shrewsbury suffers from having three disconnected and neglected shopping centres in close proximity.
The historic market town of Newbury in Berkshire is to be transformed with a new vibrant ‘streetscape’ retail-led mixed-use town centre scheme. The town and its residents will shortly benefit from a new development of retail stores, supplemented by nearly 200 residential units.
Westfield Sydney City is one of Australia’s largest sustainable mixed-use developments. It will incorporate a new office tower, the refurbishment of existing office space and the amalgamation of three existing shopping centres.
