Studio Egret West lands Kent town redevelopment

  • Comment

A team led by Studio Egret West has won the project to mastermind the £110million town centre redevelopment of Sittingbourne, Kent

Swale Borough Council chose The Spirit of Sittingbourne consortium, which includes developer Cathedral Group and property consultants Essential Land, ahead of bids by Spenhill and St James’s Investments.

David West, founding partner of Studio Egret West said: ‘We hope the project becomes a wonderful example of how to retrofit a town centre. We will pragmatically and creatively work within council ownerships, to deliver exciting new uses and the comprehensive transformation of the public realm.’

Postscript

The selected scheme focuses on the redevelopment of the town centre as a whole, and was judged by the council to be the most likely to achieve long term regeneration and invigorate the town centre. The scheme includes a series of mixed-use development opportunities and will include among other things a new Cultural Quarter with a multiplex cinema and performance venue, a new library, café and community meeting rooms, and a health centre. It’s a huge project that will generate £250 million of economic improvement over the next ten years and will create 1100 jobs.
