Renewing the High Street
Project Manager / Employer's Agent / Tenant Management
An agreement between British Land and Plymouth City Council is part of a collaboration to revitalise Old Town Street and New George Street in the heart of Plymouth City Centre. The new public realm and refurbished buildings will provide opportunity for upper brand retailers looking for good quality space in a high street, rather than within a shopping centre. The buildings were constructed in the 1950’s and have suffered from a lack of investment. This project creates a vibrant retail environment in a challenging retail sector.
Enborne Project Consultancy acted as Project and Development Manager during the feasibility study and subsequently the detailed planning application. Our skills were used to define the scope of the project, especially allocating roles and responsibilities between the two parties and working to see that the various aspects of the project could be delivered with a flexible, phased approach by both British Land and the Council as appropriate. The role continues as Client Monitor during the council’s implementation of the public realm works.
