Ravenscraig announce second phase expansion plans
September 24 2010
This sees Cooper Cromar appointed as masterplanner for the development with Keppie Design handling landscape architecture. They will join a consultancy team which includes URS Corporation, Grontmij, DSSR, Colin Buchanan, Gleeds, Muir Smith Evans and Heritage Environmental.
The second phase works constitute the central component of the masterplan which includes construction of the new town centre, which will comprise around 1m sq/ft of retail, leisure, restaurant and community facilities.
The town is expected to house 10,000 people when fully complete and will be served by a new railway station, bus interchange ad dual carriageway access from both the M8 and M74.
Jim Fitzsimons, project director at Ravenscraig Ltd, said: “With everyone now in place, we hope to start design work later this month, and this thorough and detailed process is expected to take up to two years to complete.
“It has always been our ambition to create a vibrant destination with a distinct identity and real sense of place and community where people will want to live and work, and these plans are the next step in helping us realise that goal.”
