News: Rotherham’s vision is taking shape


Developer Iliad is insisting on nothing less than a top-quality niche retail offer for its Rotherham developments. The Edwardian-era Imperial Buildings aims to kick-start the All Saints’ Quarter scheme with a comprehensive restoration of nine retail units with apartments above that are due to open this summer and, with the opening of their award-winning development, the Old Market in October ensures that this area of the town centre is set to be completely changed. Iliad’s business development director Bill Addy said “We are very pleased with how well the scheme is progressing and the interest that it is creating locally and nationally. “I think this project is proving to be an excellent example of good practice in terms of how a public/private sector partnership can work successfully to bring about town-centre regeneration.” Another developer, TCN UK has submitted ambitious transformation plans to the council that will radically overhaul the town centre, turning it into a thriving vibrant hub, offering enhanced retail and leisure facilities on an unprecedented scale. TCN UK (Northern) managing director Stephen Holme said: “These plans are ambitious, but very achievable, with a great deal of thought having gone into their drafting. The town centre offers so much potential, and we want to do it justice."
