First look at STACK Bishop Auckland

Developers have offered a first look at how STACK Bishop Auckland will look once it is completed.

In March, councillors gave the green light to the purpose-built two-storey building with a roof terrace at Newgate Street. The mixed use building will house local independent food traders and bars, as well as having a space which will be used for a wide variety of live entertainment.

Now the scheme has been given the official seal of approval, work will begin on demolishing the former WH Smith and Mothercare units.

In the meantime, developers have offered a first look at what the finished project will look like. The modern building will include all the elements that have become part of STACK’s signature brand, while fulfilling a demand for more leisure outlets in the town.

The project is being supported by the Future High Streets Fund, as part of Durham County Council’s wider regeneration plan to revitalise the town centre.

Neill Winch, CEO of STACK, said: “We know a lot of people are very curious about how STACK Bishop Auckland will fit into the area and hopefully these images give a real flavour of what they can expect. We are very excited about what this will mean for Bishop Auckland and we have already had an incredibly positive response to the development. We are looking forward to getting started and bringing this plan to fruition.”

Work is due to begin in the near future, with a view to STACK Bishop Auckland opening its doors in spring 2024.
