HKR wins Stockport office building

  • Comment
HKR Architects has won planning permission for this £13 million, five-storey office block in central Stockport.

Backed by HBG Properties, the 4,550m2 scheme in Wellington Road will sit on the site of the former Cannon cinema, overlooking St Peter’s Square.

The practice is hailing the project as ‘bringing the first modern, large floor plate, high-specification Grade-A accommodation’ to Stockport and claims the scheme is ‘the only speculative office development in the town centre with planning permission’.

Part of the council’s wider £1 billion ‘Future Stockport’ regeneration initiative, the south-west facing office will feature polished stainless-steel brise soleil and will house a restaurant and showroom space on the ground floor.

Phil Doyle, director at HKR, said: ‘The St Peter’s Square scheme will raise the bar significantly, bringing an environmentally responsive and flexible workspace to Stockport’s thriving business and professional community.’

The development will start on site in January next year and is scheduled for completion in early 2009.
