Some more Worcester sauce

When complete St Martin’s Quarter, in the heart of the industrial centre of Worcester, will be a thriving retail, restaurant and leisure destination. Produced by the scheme’s principal architects, Mountford Pigott, the video is a walk through of the development, and consists of a series of stills of the existing city centre blending seamlessly with mocked up stills of how it will look once finished, highlighting the possible new shops and restaurants.

The mocked up stills also bring our branding to life through the proposed signage, and help viewers identify the location and different aspects of the new development. We are working with our contractors on the wayfinding and hope to get all the signage installed on site as soon as possible – and we’ll obviously keep you updated in our enews.

The scheme is built on an old industrial site and as such has conservation status, meaning the design and all new brickwork had to remain sympathetic to the traditional character. The combination of this heritage with the contemporary feel that the development brings which, as those of you who have read our previous blog on this project will know, was an important element when creating the branding.

Finally, the virtual tour takes the viewer past the main anchor store, Asda, and through to the focal point of the development, a sculpture made from the stonework from one of the city’s last remaining industrial kilns.
