Basildon Town Square makeover starts on site
3DReid’s work in Basildon Town Square has begun on site. Our scheme for Clearbell Capital, who took ownership of the shops next to Marks and Spencers in 2015, was granted planning permission in December and sees the tired shopping parade rejuvenated with contemporary interventions. We are working with Future54 to improve the facade, canopy and internal configuration with an aspiration to attract High Street names to the town and fill empty units.
Key to the regeneration is the relocation of the market to St Martin’s Square along with South Essex College moving to a purpose-built campus on the former market site. The transformation of the rundown shopping parade kickstarts the town’s regeneration. Further plans to regenerate the northern part of Town Square could come forward by 2019, according to Adam James of Clearbell and Basildon Council has its own plans for a mix of homes, bars and cafes.
The facelift is scheduled for completion by September.
