Supported by RivingtonHark, Cheshire West and Chester Council has entered into the build contract to deliver phase 1 of Chester Northgate and construction has commenced.

After decades of failed attempts the Northgate area of Chester city centre is about to be transformed into a major new destination incorporating a new Pitcurehouse cinema, new bars and restaurants, a world class market, new parking facilities, all stitched together by high quality public realm and spaces.  This £70million project must be one of the only major projects to get underway during the current pandemic and will open its doors in early 2022, playing a significant role in helping the city recover from the current health and subsequent economic crisis.

David Lewis has led this scheme since appointment in mid 2014, successfully navigating a CPO & TRO public inquiry and dealing with the numerous challenges endured along the way, not least the seismic shift in retailing in the UK.
