News: TCN UK celebrates progress of £135m Waterfront project


Anglo-Dutch developers, TCN UK are marking the second anniversary of its 285-acre Waterfront mixed-use development at Manvers, in Rotherham. The past 24 months have seen the company push ahead with remarkable transformations of a former coalfield wasteland. They include the completion of the British Canoeing Union’s Olympic Training Club, next to the 50-acre lake, the completion of the nine-hole pay and play golf course, clubhouse and driving range, the completion of the Marston’s family pub, rapid progress in building a 130-room Radisson Park Inn, due for completion in the spring and securing planning permission for a KFC drive-thru restaurant. The developers have also secured a deal with housebuilder Taylor Wimpey to build 334 homes. The plans for the site of the former Manvers colliery comprises residential apartments and houses, together with an Aldi store, a health club and a medical centre alongside commercial and industrial buildings, a truly mixed use development. Stephen Holme, managing director of TCN UK, said: "With the leisure and residential elements of the Waterfront scheme reaching completion or well under way, we are now in a strong position to start marketing the office and industrial accommodation. "Planning has been granted for 78,000 sq ft of business premises, and we are able to cater for a range of requirements on a design-and-build basis, up to 100,000 sq ft. Waterfront will be ideal for any business wanting bespoke premises just a seven-minute drive from the M1. "But what makes Waterfront particularly attractive to companies is that it has a range of leisure and retail amenities on the doorstep. Many new office parks in the region can not offer this. It’s a business benefit that will set us apart from the competition and contribute to Waterfront’s attraction as a major location for companies. They can put down roots in an area with a readily available amenities and potential workforce, and create jobs for local people with a tradition of hard work."
