Is CBD a sensible size

copy of e-mail sent to Cheetham & Mortimer

In a recent interview Warwick Smither, director of property consultant Cheetham & Mortimer, which is advising Genr8, believes the scheme suits Rochdale and will provide new units that will attract the likes of Next, Debenhams and Topshop – none of which is represented.

“If we were setting out to do a big-box scheme like The Rock in Bury, I would be sceptical. But it is not a huge scheme. It is a sensible size, complemented by a leisure component,” he says.

Would Warwick Smither like to comment on the 7.9ha “central business district” development being planned by Genr8? being a similar sized development I believe to The Rock
