Project Detail

Redevelopment of the former Leicester City Council site, New Walk, Leicester

Regeneration Project of the Year Award 2018 Finalist

The mixed use development that replaced the former Leicester City Council HQ on New Walk includes offices, apartments, retail and new public space.

The development has given the site a new lease of life and encouraged further regeneration nearby.

The 50,000 square feet of offices is in one building. More than 50 apartments and 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail are in a second structure.

The two buildings are very different, with their materials chosen to complement each other and the surrounding area.

Project Overview

The scheme replaced an old, tired building considered an eyesore on the Leicester skyline with two modern, attractive buildings which provide much needed office and residential space.

Improving the public open space in the area, the large new areas are user friendly and designed to attract lunchtime workers. Semi-mature trees were planted to echo the tree-lined pedestrian corridor of New Walk.

An underground car park sits below both buildings, with the undercroft designed to blend with the surrounding area and not detract from the buildings above.

The office building is being occupied by the wealth management firm Mattioli Woods. The whole development was entirely privately funded.
