Leader of the Council, Cllr Hunter attended a ‘topping out ceremony’ on the roof of the new 14-storey residential building in Stockport’s Interchange. The completion of the 14-storey residential building is a milestone in the development of Stockport’s interchange, part of £1bn of investment in the borough.

Cllr Hunter was joined by Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and representatives of the companies delivering the project.

Cllr Hunter said: “The Interchange is more than just a transport hub. It is a clear statement about the future of the town centre and our borough as a whole and we are really looking forward to it opening next spring.”

Upon completion, the Interchange will offer 2 acres of urban greenspace, as well as providing walking and cycling links to the town centre and across the borough. The Interchange will be accessible to all, with a spiral ramp enabling a seamless journey for everyone travelling from the station to the town centre. The Interchange will also be the site of 4,000 new homes, leisure space, workspace and amenities.

Cllr Colin Macalister, Cabinet Member for Economy, Regeneration and Housing, added: “This transformational development within the wider Mayoral Development Corporation regeneration area will bring much-needed homes literally on top of purpose-built transport infrastructure. This approach to town-centre living will help us transform the Town Centre West area whilst maximising accessibility and creating a brand new green open space.”
