News: Council building makes way for Rotherham Renaissance developments


The Council's Crinoline House building in Rotherham town centre is closing to the public this month as part of the wider Renaissance of Rotherham that involves the disposal or refurbishment of key council buildings.

Work is underway on the new civic offices on the former Guest and Chrimes site at Main Street. The 16,000 sq m of office space for Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council will free existing council office sites throughout the town centre enabling alternative redevelopment to happen.

Council staff will be moving into the new building in early 2012 with the current council offices vacated by April 2012.

Developers, TCN UK secured a five year exclusivity agreement with the Council to utilise 101,722 sq m of vacant land following the relocation of these scattered council buildings.

Their £192m plans include space for retail, office and leisure facilities including a Cultural Quarter on Forge Island. Consisting of three main phases covering 11 strategic sites, the developers are also working with retailers, Tesco.
