About Weir Mill - Stockport
Weir Mill is located in the heart of Stockport for developer Capital & Centric. Work includes the restoration of the mill buildings and the construction of two new buildings to create a thriving new community in the town.
The Grade II-listed former cotton mill will feature a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as 24,000 sq ft of commercial space across the existing and new buildings. The adjoining West Shed is intended as a relaxed and flexible co-working space, set amongst the amazing brick vaulted ceilings.
The designs incorporate spaces for independent businesses, such as shops, café-bars or delis, as well as a public space looking out across the River Mersey. The riverside zone, which would include a pontoon, could be used as a venue for street markets, DJ sets and live music events. Weavers Square, a new public space, will create a flexible venue for markets and events, and is located next to the Grade II-listed Stockport Viaduct, giving people the opportunity to experience the scale of the amazing structure up close.
The development will be comprised of two new build residential blocks 14 story and 7 story respectively, and the full fit out of the existing Mill buildings breathing new life into the previously industrial heritage of the development.
The works will be completed over a 104 week programme period and currently completing the concrete frame foundation works to the new buildings and industrial cleaning within the Mill buildings in preparation for the façade remedial works.
The site is located next to Stockport’s iconic viaduct and parallel to The River Mersey at the John Sisk & Son Holdings Ltd Site Offices, Chestergate, Stockport, SK3 0AG.
