Waterfront Regeneration

The Waterfront Mills area was derelict from 1999 until 2005.

The development is called contains business, leisure and residential properties.Things may have slowed down a little, but it is already clear that the development is transforming this area of the city.

The first phase of the Waterfront Regeneration plan was completed in 2009 with the creation of new office, work space and new homes.

The Hepworth Gallery, adjacent to Rutland Mills, was opened in 2011, marking the end of phase 2.

Now, in phase 3, a developer, City & Provincial Properties, has bought the Rutland Mills site, some 10 acres, and a 'northern extension' to its 'creative media hub' in London could be created.
