Telford Town Centre Living Cluster
The next phase in the development of Telford Town Centre, Station Quarter, is unlocking an immediate investment opportunity for developers and equity investors. A cluster of residential sites across the wider town centre will bring high quality living to the heart of Telford, close to strategic road and rail transport links and a great retail and leisure offer. Combined the sites offer circa 6ha of prime development land, predominantly for residential but also for some smaller scale commercial development opportunities.
A total of 10 development sites have been identified for development across the wider town centre. These are situated on land owned by Telford & Wrekin Council and owners of Telford Shopping Centre, Orion. The proposals are focused on the delivery of a mixture of town houses and apartments, building on the town centre living offer being kick started in Station Quarter. Delivery is seen as key to ensuring that Telford continues to thrive as a town centre whilst responding to a changing retail environment.
The residential offer will be focussed on high density but sustainable design to create a mixed tenure housing product which will be attractive to young people wanting to build their careers in Telford.
