New Walk


Sowden Group



New Walk, Leicester


This mixed use development comprises 50,000ft2 of office space, 10,000ft2 of retail and 54 high quality one and two bedroom apartments. There is also a new area of public realm at the front of the development, which ties in with the public realm improvement works undertaken by Leicester City Council.

Improving the public open space in the area, the large new areas are user friendly and designed to attract lunchtime workers. Semi-mature trees were planted to echo the tree-lined pedestrian corridor of New Walk.

An underground car park sits below both buildings, with the undercroft designed to blend with the surrounding area and not detract from the buildings above.

Finalist in the Regeneration Project of the Year category at the ProCon Awards 2018.
