In this post, we take a look at some of these fantastic projects and their current phase of development.

The Glass Works Development Project of Barnsley Council Enters Phase Two

A regeneration project with an estimated budget of £180m, The Glass Works was launched in 2016. The project aims to convert a 3.8-hectare site surrounding Barnsley’s Cheapside into a retail and leisure centre.

The project has entered phase 2 of development – contracts to that effect have been signed by the Barnsley Council and Henry Boot Construction.

Phase 1 of the project, also helmed by Henry Boot Construction, involved the construction of a new library and a complete make-over of Barnsley Markets.

Phase 2 will involve the construction of 100,000 sq. ft. of retail space and 25,000 sq. ft. of leisure space including restaurants and cafes. The leisure and retail space will be set amidst a landscaped public square.

The expected time of completion of Phase 2 is June 2021.
