In 2017 EPR developed a concept masterplan for the Martineau Galleries as part of an analysis of the impact and opportunities generated by the arrival of HS2. Our concept study sought to establish a new gateway to the north of the city centre where living, working and shopping come together within a high-quality public realm.
The redevelopment of the site aimed to act as a fulcrum, connecting the business district of Snowhill to the west, the city’s established retail core to the south and the emerging HS2 Station development to the east.
Our concept study, developed to be highly phaseable, included more than 1,000,000ft² of office space, 1,100 residential apartments and 50,000ft² of complementary retail space focused around a vibrant and well-connected public realm.
