Green light for Cartwright Pickard's Wakefield Council HQ

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Cartwright Pickard Architects’ proposal for new civic offices for Wakefield Council has been secured

The four-storey building will house 1,200 authority employees and sit adjacent to the County Hall as part of the 17-acre Wakefield Merchant Gate Masterplan. The project is being built between the railway station and Wakefield city centre.

A key feature of the new building is the large atrium and a ground floor café open to the public.

Councillor Graham Stokes said: ‘This will be a key building. It will provide a central one-stop point for citizens who want to access information and service. It will also create more modern, efficient and effective offices, meaning we can maintain and improve the services we provide for the district.’

Work will start on the offices next spring as part of phase two of the English Cities Fund scheme for Wakefield. Phase one has seen over £50 million worth of new development get underway in Wakefield centre.
