The city of Bradford is currently undergoing a major regeneration programme. The key to the city’s regeneration has been the development of the Masterplan created by world-renowned architect Will Alsop. The ‘Masterplan’ is a city regeneration project which is both radical and far reaching. Its aim is to reposition and reveal Bradford, by opening up its hidden views, historic architecture and buried watercourses.
Bradford already has a lot to shout about. It was recently named as one of the top six cities in the UK for potential economic growth by OMIS. Property prices are rising and major developments are already underway.
This vision for Bradford in 2020 will change people’s perceptions of living, working and socialising in the city centre.
Work has started on Bradford’s long-awaited Broadway scheme - a retail and office development being spearheaded by Australian shopping centre giant Westfield. To add to that, there has been extensive work on the Darley Street area of the city, which has revitalised the retail heart of Bradford by enhancing the streets for shoppers.
