Strategic site 3: Central Business District
Central Business District
Location: Blackpool Town Centre
Size: 25 ac (10ha)
Key stakeholder / owner: MUSE Developments Ltd / Blackpool Council
Summary: Significant developer-led redevelopment scheme situated on the edge of Blackpool Town Centre, around North station. Anchored by a Sainsburys foodstore, Blackpool Council and other office development and a transportation hub, the scheme will create a new business focus within this strategically important site.
Opportunities: The development is anchored by Sainsburys and a Blackpool Council office function, both delivered early in order to provide a critical mass and create momentum for the development. There are, however, exciting opportunities for forward thinking commercial operations to be a part of the development. Approximately 50,000 sq ft of commercial offices and in the region of 30,000 sq ft of non-food retail space are included in the early phase development.
