The new shops and homes in Hatfield have moved a step closer this month with the completion of the highest point of the structure of 88-96 Town Centre by regeneration specialist St. Modwen.
The new building is the largest currently under construction in Hatfield as part of the project, located next to Asda on the old St Albans Road.
When finished, 88-96 town centre will include five shops and fifteen modern one and two-bed apartments, many with balconies overlooking the pedestrianised shopping street.The ‘topping out’ of the building marks a key milestone in the construction programme, as the developers now turn their attention to fitting out the shops and homes.
St. Modwen is also continuing the construction of 17c and 17d Town Centre, facing White Lion Square, with both buildings due for completion next year. As part of the current works the old St Albans road running between the two sites will also be refurbished, including new street furniture and paving along the street.
Gary Morris, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen said that it was exciting to see the new buildings taking shape in Hatfield:”With the roof in place, visitors to the town centre can get a good impression of how 88-96 Town Centre will look on completion, bringing modern shops and homes to the heart of Hatfield.
“With the main structure complete we’re now turning our attention to the new buildings facing White Lion Square, as well as a improvements at street level to provide a better, brighter environment for shoppers and residents.”
