The £120m project includes a striking rooftop park, and a cycle- and foot-bridge linking the development with the town’s railway station.
Also joint venture developers, Cityheart and Rise Homes, will deliver a 17-storey residential block next to the new interchange offering up to 200 flats.
Construction of the new interchange scheme will start in early 2021, with completion estimated for 2023. The residential development is expected to open in 2024.
Located alongside the A6 and Mersey Square, the scheme forms a key part of the wider £1bn regeneration of the town centre.
The transport hub will be connected to the A6 by a lift, which will also open out onto the new, two-acre public park on the roof of the interchange building, next to the residential block.
A new cycle- and foot-bridge linking the development and railway station, together with the new rooftop park, will improve walking and cycling routes through Stockport and to the Trans Pennine Trail.
Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the north, said: “We are proud to be appointed to this exciting project, one that will be a catalyst for the regeneration of the town centre and create a new gateway for the people of Stockport.”
