ALL ENQUIRIES: Eastgate Quarter, Stafford

Posted on September 13, 2021

AspinallVerdi on behalf of Staffordshire County Council is exploring interest from potential occupiers, developers or investors who wish to participate in the regeneration of the Eastgate Quarter, Stafford.

We are inviting expressions of interest to inform the early feasibility development and procurement of this significant town centre development opportunity.

The Eastgate Quarter is located within Stafford town centre between the traditional retail core and the more recently developed Riverside shopping centre, adjacent to and including modern offices occupied by Staffordshire County Council.  The regeneration area is north of the River Sow and in part is situated within a Conservation Area which includes numerous listed period buildings.

Staffordshire County Council, the majority freeholder, is working with Stafford Borough Council to regenerate this area with four inter-linked development opportunities.  It is envisaged this will see a combination of repurposing existing buildings and/or redevelopment across four identified Zones extending to c. 2.9 hectares / 7.2 acres in total.

It is acknowledged that a phased approach will be necessary and it is anticipated that a variety of outcomes, potentially residential and commercial in nature, will result with the Eastgate Quarter being flexible to the demands and interest of the occupational market together with property developers and investors. 

This proposal has considerable untapped potential for occupiers, developers and investors in commercial elements including but not limited to: food and beverage, leisure, cultural, offices, flexible workspace and hotel or serviced apartment uses to increase vitality within the town centre.  Opportunities for residential uses are also present and include either conversion of existing buildings and/or new build flats or townhouses.

We are seeking initial expressions of interest from potential occupiers, developers, and/or investors who might wish to participate in one or all of the four zones.  This soft market testing exercise will inform the next stages of development of the project.

At this stage we invite you to express interest only in this exciting regeneration project.

  • Occupiers / operators – we are seeking expressions of interest from: managed workspace providers; office tenants; cafes; restaurants; bars/leisure operators, hotel operators, serviced residential operators, etc. 
  • Developers – we are seeking expressions of interest from developers / development managers who could deliver part or all of the scheme.
  • Investors – we are seeking expressions of interest from investors who could fund part or all of the scheme exclusively or in partnership with the public sector.
