1st phase of £26 million Leicester (UK) waterside regeneration is presented

City council bosses are poised to submit plans for the £9.5 million first phase of the regeneration of Leicester, England‘s run-down former industrial riverside area.

It includes building two new office buildings at Friar’s Mill near the old formerly fire damaged Donisthorpe Factory which is currently being turned into a £6.3 million complex of business units.

Leicester mayor Sir Peter Soulsby has outlined a multi-million pound scheme to regenerate around 100 acres of run-down riverside land.

The council has secured more than £26 million of Government cash for planning.
