New-build town centre mixed residential, retail and leisure in a heritage location CDP worked with Bedford Council’s for the creation of a new cultural quarter in the heart of this historic town.
The proposals result from a major architectural competition and respond to the site’s position and archaeological importance, within the remains of Bedford‘s mediaeval castle.
The development comprises three new bar/restaurant units which have terraces overlooking a new archaeological park which will expose the inner bailey of the castle for the first time. The park will add critical mass to the adjoining Museum, Art Gallery and Castle Mound.
A further series of new buildings of up to eight storeys provide 103 one, two and three bedroom apartments above eight retail units provide an active and vibrant street frontage.
