The development will provide grade A office space and is being developed by PSP Bolton LLP, an innovative public / private partnership, comprising Bolton Council and Public Sector Plc (PSP). The office building will act as a gateway to the flagship £48m transport interchange, the revamp of Newport Street and the ongoing developments at the Market Place.

Adam Cunnington, from PSP, said: “We are delighted to be playing a part in a landmark development for Bolton town centre. The £6.5m Bolton Central will deliver high specification, modern building accommodation in a prime location fronting the new Bolton Interchange.

Councillor Cliff Morris, Leader of Bolton Council, said: “We have been approached by a number of businesses looking for high quality office accommodation in the town centre, but we have had a shortage of suitable buildings to offer them. This building will be very attractive to potential occupiers and we hope that it will also be a catalyst for future developments and investment, as well as increasing footfall and spend in the town centre.”

Martin Westgate, from Robertson Construction, said: “It’s always great to break ground on a project that can have a lasting impact on its surrounding community. There is huge potential in Bolton Central, particularly when viewed as part of the entire public realm improvements taking place in the town centre.”
