Europe’s largest cinema operator is to run the new cinema in Oldham’s old town hall.
Following months of talks, the council and Odeon Cinemas have agreed plans to transform the derelict,
Grade II-listed building into a new, 805-seat family complex with seven screens, six restaurants and a cafe franchise.
Working with BDP and Oldham Council, VP produced a suite of CGI’s for the new extension and refurbishment.
Stockport Council has unveiled ‘The Light Cinemas Ltd’ as its operating partner for a brand new multiplex cinema at the Bridgefield development in Stockport Town Centre.
The cinema will be the anchor tenant in the new 80,000 sqft leisure led development to be built on the site of the existing car park at Bridgefield Street. The development, designed by BDP, features not only a new cinema but food and drink outlets, hotel, shops and a new 250 space car park. VP produced a suite of 10 CGI’s for the consultation.
Planning consent was granted this week for BDP’s flagship large scale housing development in Westminster. The scheme which comprises a new community of 248 homes, where the majority of flats are dual or triple aspect and each has a balcony or terrace.
A central garden forms the communal heart within which the community hub building sits. Car parking is placed below the garden maximising garden and play space.
The site responds sensitively to the adjacent conservation area, and opens up to the south maximising sunlight and strategic views.
Completion is due 2016.
