Rowlinson has completed construction on the mixed use development at the former Tatton cinema site on behalf of Stockport Homes.
The site, which had stood vacant since 2001, has been transformed with a mixture of new retirement homes and a new retail unit within the old cinema.
In line with local views, retaining the art deco frontage was a key element of the scheme.
The majority of the new self-contained homes are in support of the drive to make more housing available for older people and will be available to rent to those aged over 55.
The apartments include features such as accessible bathrooms, door entry systems and scooter stores.
The retention of the façade ensures that the heritage of the building lives on whilst leaving the old derelict cinema far behind.
David Chilton, managing director, Rowlinson said “Quite understandably, this development is something that the community really wanted to see happen so it’s great to see the site functioning again. The retention of the façade ensures that the heritage of the building lives on whilst leaving the old derelict cinema far behind.”
Seven homes are located above the retail units. A further 26 two-bedroom apartments along with parking, are found to the rear.
The scheme was constructed by Rowlinson on behalf of Stockport Homes, with design by Nicol Thomas architects.
