ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2019

Project Detail

Riverside and Fabric Buildings, Friars Mill

Regeneration Project of the Year Award 2019 Finalist

The Riverside and Fabric buildings completed the regeneration of the listed Friars Mill site. The two new office buildings (Riverside at 5,383 sqft and Fabric at 4,990 sqft) are high-quality contemporary designs.

They reflect their location’s industrial character adjacent to the River Soar and Grand Union Canal, just a few minutes’ walk from Leicester’s Highcross shopping centre.

The scheme has boosted the market for office space in this part of Leicester, underpinning the ongoing regeneration of the city’s waterside and providing a viable in-town alternative to out of town business parks.

Project Overview

The original scheme was commissioned by Leicester City Council but its contractor collapsed into administration halfway through construction. Brackley Property Developments partnered with the City Council to successfully pick up and deliver the scheme

The scale and proportion of the new buildings are respectful of the adjacent listed buildings and echo the Victorian canal-side industrial buildings that were characteristic of this area.

Unite the Union has already purchased the Riverside building.
