£250m Transformation of Nottingham Southside: Building a Better Broadmarsh

We have won a contract as part of a huge investment to redevelop the Nottingham Southside and Broadmarsh area in Nottingham.

The work will transform the face of the southern city centre returning Nottingham into the top six of retail destinations in the UK, boosting the local economy and bringing jobs to the city.

The project includes the demolishing and rebuilding Broadmarsh car park and bus station, the pedestrianisation of (upper) Carrington Street, a new Central Library and the creation of a new public space on Collin Street which will also be pedestrianised.

The old Broadmarsh Bus Station and car park was a large old concrete building which was once voted the 'ugliest building in Nottingham'.

The intu Broadmarsh will also be redeveloped alongside this project, with completion scheduled for 2021. The new modern leisure and retail destination will welcome people to the city from Nottingham Station. The Light Cinema and Hollywood Bowl have already signed up with more tenants expected to announce throughout the redevelopment.

The Broadmarsh redevelopment is part of a £250million regeneration of what is termed the ‘Nottingham Southside’ project encompassing the southern side of Nottingham. 

Other projects included in the Nottingham Southside project include the Nottingham City Hub and the redeveloped Nottingham Castle.

TRD's works are to carry out a major strip out of the existing shopping precinct structure back to the frame and preparation works, including propping, reduction of internal walls, and creation of new openings to enable future reconfiguring by others to meet the new scheme layout.

Councillor Jon Collins is the leader of the city council, and represents the St Ann's ward for Labour.

He said: “The redevelopment of the Broadmarsh area is one of the city council’s biggest commitments to improving the city centre for the people of Nottingham and its visitors. It will bring jobs, economic growth and new business to the city, making it a more attractive place to live, visit and work.

“Everyone agrees this part of the city is overdue improvement and investment, and through careful planning we have now put ourselves in a position to turn it into an area where people will choose to go – whether that’s to the new college, the revamped castle, the new leisure and retail outlets in the redeveloped Broadmarsh Centre, or simply lingering in the new pedestrianised areas between the city centre and the improved Nottingham Station.

"Work is already underway on all of this, along with a new car park and bus station poised to be built to add to the transport improvements in the area – with the possibility that a brand new Central Library could be located here too.

"We’re already seeing how all of this is prompting investment in other properties in the area, along with other big developments on the horizon at Unity Square, the Island Site and the City Buildings on Carrington Street."

What was known locally as an “eyesore” in Nottingham and having stood derelict for quite some time previously, TRD carried out the demolition of Unity Square in July 2017.
