Stockport is set to have an incredible year in 2024, with exciting developments and events on the horizon. The borough has already received praise as a great place to live and work, and now it is ready to take things to the next level.
One of the standout projects is the transformation of the old bus station into a modern transport interchange. This ambitious endeavor includes a two-acre park on the roof, complete with trees, a drainage system, and solar panels. Additionally, there will be new residential apartments and state-of-the-art transport facilities.
Another highlight is the completion of the fourth phase of Stockport Exchange, a business hub in the town center. This phase will feature a high-quality office building and a multi-storey car park. The development has already attracted both national and international companies, and the latest addition is HURSTS accountants.
In the autumn, Stockport will welcome Stockroom, a new creative and learning center in the town center. This accessible space aims to provide opportunities for discovery and education for the whole family.
Other exciting projects include the opening of a JD Sports flagship store and Poundland in the former BHS building, as well as the ongoing work of the Stockport Mayoral Development Corporation to deliver new homes in the town center.
Overall, 2024 promises to be a year of growth and transformation for Stockport. With its status as the Greater Manchester Town of Culture, there will also be a variety of cultural events and celebrations throughout the year. The borough is buzzing with anticipation, and there is a lot to look forward to in the coming months.
