We are hugely excited about The Brunel Development and plans to regenerate and make better use of this prominent site through the part re-development of the Brunel Shopping Centre, Canal Walk, Swindon.
Last week, FI Real Estate Management and the project team hosted a two-day public consultation exhibition for local residents, businesses and stakeholders providing the opportunity to view the scheme in more detail, provide feedback and ask the project team any questions.
Positioned in the heart of the Town Centre, the Brunel Shopping Centre is home to over 100 shops, equating to 520,000sqft of retail space. It is made up of five distinct areas including Canal Walk, The Plaza, Havelock Square, Regent Street and The Arcade. The Centre also benefits from an adjoining 750-space multi-storey car park.
An opportunity exists to further enhance it’s profile further by transforming a section of the Centre adjacent to Canal Walk – the existing House of Fraser – into a landmark leisure attraction. Together with this, there is an opportunity to encourage a new residential presence into this part of the Town Centre, bringing even more vibrancy and activity to this key location.
Forming the edge of this could be an exciting new public green space, acting as a threshold from Farnsby Street to the west into the Retail Centre.
