Bradford seeks architect for Oastler Centre overhaul

The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council is on the hunt for an architect to overhaul the Oastler Centre

The project will reconfigure the shopping centre – formerly known as John Street Market – and create a new food court and outdoor covered market area.

According to the contract notice: ‘The aim is to create modern facilities that will enhance the appeal of the centre to both existing and new users.’

Named after English labour reformer Richard Oastler, the complex in Bradford’s Northern Quarter features fish, meat, fresh fruit and vegetable stalls alongside cafes and other food outlets.

The project to overhaul the mall comes ahead of the planned December opening of the long-delayed Westfield Bradford shopping centre in the city centre.

The winner of the £350,000 contract will first develop plans up to RIBA Stage 2 and then – subject to a viable concept design being produced – up to RIBA Stage 7.

The deadline for requests to participate is 2pm on 1 July.
