Exeter's medieval heart is to have a £50 million mixed-used scheme overlooked by the cathedral, after the city council approved designs by three architects. A four-storey glass drum of shops by Wilkinson Eyre Architects will form part of the 53,000m 2scheme. Chapman Taylor is coordinating work on the Princesshay post-war shopping precinct and is designing 40 flats and 70 shops. And Panter Hudspith Architects is working on civic spaces, refurbishments and new shops.
The scheme will total 102 flats. Livingston Eyre Associates will work on landscaping for the client, Land Securities Developments.
