FAT unveils designs for Darlington wool-factory site

London-based practice FAT has submitted these plans to convert the site of a former wool factory in Darlington into 1,200 homes and office space ‘for several thousand’.

The £100 million scheme at Lingfield Point – once the largest wool-manufacturing centre in Europe – is being billed as a ‘trendy’ mixed-use, low-energy development.

The project, for landowner and developer Marchday, will include a new medical centre and public allotments, plus an outdoor performance area and exhibition space inside a disused power station.
