Alan Turner, a development team leader with Advantage West Midlands, which is partnering St Modwen, said: ‘We have now moved to the stage where we are looking for concept architects to develop the massing and form of the town centre’s buildings.
‘Barton Wilmore is still very much involved, but we thought it was time to through it open to the market.’
The redevelopment plans include a mixed-use town centre, transport interchange, technology park and residential and commercial buildings.
Turner added that the project – which covers 163ha – could cost up to £1 billion and is expected to take 20 years to fully complete.
