The Ridings

Comprehensive redevelopment of existing atrium centre

Project summary

  • Client: Moorfield Group Ltd
  • Location: Wakefield
  • Sector: Retail & Leisure
  • Value: £9 million
  • Status: Completed


The Redevelopment of an established shopping centre in the heart of Wakefield was carried out over a two year rolling programme to minimise disturbance to trading. The new look has been reflected throughout the Centre with the inclusion of new food outlets and two feature lifts within the prominent circulation hubs.

In addition an expansive curved glass atrium has created a striking new entrance at Cathedral Walk. Additional entrances at Almshouse Lane and Kirkgate use glass and natural light to enhance the shopping environment and improve interaction between the Centre and the public realm.
