Rhys Owen, Leasing Director, Orbit Developments, discusses that things are looking up for Stockport town centre.

As a property owner across the North West, we are well placed to see commercial letting activity first-hand and there are very few parts of the area that are seeing changes of the size and scale of Stockport town centre.

There are some significant physical differences already, but there are further improvements to come and to areas that will broaden the changing direction of the town centre and the retail/leisure offer.

The message of change is starting to reach those that need to hear it and the constant positive news stories that come from the food and drink venues in the town centre are just some of the ways that show the journey Stockport is now on.

Foodie Friday has long extolled the virtues of Stockport and its unrivalled success together with cool shout outs from The Blossoms rock band continue to shine an exciting light on the town centre.

Key parts of the centre are so close to being an amazing asset we just need the proposed funds for the marketplace and surrounding areas to be released.

The messages need to be stronger though.

At Orbit we continue to talk about the town centre’s improving community to local and national, even international companies. This face to face endorsement is working, converting interest into new jobs, footfall and spending.

To keep up with demand we have recently refurbished our property at 1 St Peter’s Square, offering quality office space in line with what new business owners want and supporting the wider ambitions of Stockport. Things are definitely moving in the right direction.
