Great Central Station, Former Stibbe Site

Leicester, UK

Client Charles Street Buildings (Leicester) Ltd

Form of Contract Design & Build

Value £10 million

Year of Completion 2019

Leicester’s Connecting Spaces regeneration project has received a big boost with the unveiling of a new plan to transform Great Central Station and the site of the former Stibbe factory.

The former Stibbe site will be redeveloped a new 43,000 sqft office block designed by Stephen George + Partners together with a 152-bed Novotel hotel and 100 bed Adagio “aparthotel”.

Plans also include the refurbishment of the station including its glass canopy and front façade.

At the heart of the proposal is a new traffic-free public space, which will include part of Great Central Street so that the refurbished station becomes integral to the development.

The Masterplan (designed by Stephen George + Partners) also involves creating a new pedestrian “super-crossing” of Vaughan Way, linking the development directly to the city centre.
