The Project also offers a response to changing working habits due to COVID-19.

Occupying the ground floor there will be shopfronts focusing on food and sharing a central public space with a café.

There will also be a cycle hub and the upper floors will contain flexible business and training units and some accommodation.

The scheme will be an exemplar of low carbon building and designed to the highest quality in keeping with the conservation area status of the site.

A proposed atrium forms a direct link between the new Civic Square and Pollination Street and will double up as a Winter Garden.

The ground floor units will have shop windows to the outside as well as trading within the atrium for animation as well as futureproofing the businesses for future pandemics.
