Food Store & High Street Retail

BIRTLEY

This development consisted of the regeneration of a brownfield site centrally located within Birtley town centre, to provide a 62,000 ft2 Morrisons store and High Street shops.

With limited High Street frontage and challenging site topography, the key aim was to provide High Street presence whilst the main store is set well back in the site. This was achieved with the provision of a designated entrance to the foodstore on the High Street frontage alongside a series of new retail units. This entrance would lead shoppers along an airy route across a bridge directly to the main sales area which is raised on stilts above an undercroft car park.
