Central Street, Bolton


The Central Street development will create a new neighbourhood in the heart of Bolton town centre and provide 230 homes for private rent. The masterplan is driven by the area's context and landscape, relating back to the fine grain layout during Bolton’s industrial peak and creates new links to a regenerated River Croal so that this asset can be brought into greater use. Central Street becomes a key linking route bringing people to and from the nearby civic quarter.

Homes are spread across three buildings, each supported by generous external amenity and shared communal spaces. Varied outdoor spaces located throughout, both at ground level and elevated, as well as diverse internal shared spaces, seek to provide as many options as possible for residents to socialise, work, eat, exercise and relax.
