Willmott Dixon has secured two more big project deals in Rochdale continuing its pivotal role in the town’s £400m regeneration programme.

After completing phase one of the Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure development in the town centre, the builder is now moving forward with phase two and separately has also secured a 200 homes scheme for developer Capital & Centric.

£100m Rochdale investment breakthrough

  • Rochdale Riverside phase two – working with the council in partnership with Genr8 Developments, Willmott Dixon has a £2.7m enabling package to ready the site for its to start construction next spring to create 220 apartments, for affordable rent, as well as a hotel on land currently used as car parking off Baillie Street and John Street.

  • Neighbourhood Rochdale – working as build partner for Capital and Centric, Willmott Dixon will redevelop the former Central Retail Park, a brownfield plot less than a mile from the Rochdale Riverside site, into a new community of 200 low carbon homes.

Rochdale Development Agency is delivering the Riverside scheme on behalf of Rochdale Council, in partnership with developer Genr8 Developments and Japanese investor Kajima.

Willmott Dixon’s new role on these schemes follows its commitment last week that all its operations, plus its new build and refurbishment projects delivered from 2030, will be net zero carbon.

Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the North, said: “Both developments will be a blueprint for vital town centre regeneration across the UK.

“Developments like Rochdale Riverside have already put the town on the map as a great place to live and work in.

“Phase Two and Neighbourhood will continue to blaze that trail for developments which leave a lasting positive legacy and stimulate the local economy.”
