Mill Gate, Bury

Having set the vision and concept of Mill Gate to act as a catalyst for regeneration, RivingtonHark facilitated the sale of the scheme to a JV between Bury Council and Bruntwood in order to deliver a transformative masterplan for the town centre.

Mill Gate is a key strategic site at the heart of the town providing c. 400,000 sq.ft of convenience and community shopping with a multistorey car park and links to the tram and bus interchange.  It is adjacent to the world famous and award winning Bury Market for which the Council has secured £20m from the Levelling Up Fund to support the development of a new flexi use market hall, investment into Bury Market and enhanced public realm.

RivingtonHark are appointed as Asset Managers on behalf of the owners to run the asset and provide strategic advice while the exciting plans for the Mill Gate and wider masterplan are developed. The new owner’s ambition is to create a more diverse mix of uses to revitalise the town centre and we will continue to focus on optimising the income and supporting those plans. We look forward to being able to play a key part in the next stage of Mill Gate’s (and Bury’s) evolution!
