The Grade II listed Corn Exchange market building was built in 1879 and has a long tradition as a trading location in the city from its original market hall roots to its more recent use as department store and retail units. The reconfiguration and extension of the building allows the creation of larger ground floor units, with a unique large floor plate food and beverage space above totalling circa 25,500 sq ft.
The Cornhill Quarter development represents the most significant refurbishment and new-build retail development in the heart of the city centre in recent times, giving the opportunity to deliver modern, well configured retail floorspace not available elsewhere in the city centre.
