Westgate Demonstrator Project

Rotherham

GHA’s competition-winning masterplan for the Westgate area of post-industrial town Rotherham formed part of town’s ‘Renaissance Charter’ that aims to repopulate the centre, restore key buildings and improve public spaces.

With Iliad, GHA identified three key development sites: the restoration of the Grade II listed Edwardian-era market Imperial Buildings in the All Saints Quarter of the town and two housing sites near the River Don, one being the Old Market. At all three locations commercial space was proposed at ground floor (restored at Imperial Buildings ) to activate street level frontages.
