Stoke central business district gets underway

Back to News

Phase one of Stoke-on-Trent’s new Smithfield development celebrated a key milestone today with the “topping out” of the two buildings at the heart of the project.

Regeneration specialist Genr8 Developments has launched its Stoke Central Business District development to the market as it goes on site with the £40m first phase of the scheme.

It is now on site to start its plans to develop 210,000 sq ft of grade A offices over two buildings, both to be occupied by Stoke-on-Trent City Council.

Advised by the Manchester office of Jones Lang LaSalle, Genr8 launches the 1.2 million sq ft development as ‘Smithfield’, which is derived from the original Smithfield bottle works being retained on the site.

The scheme comprises grade A offices, hotel, retail and leisure accommodation and more than three acres of public space.
