Cornhill Quarter

Cosy Club 1 1

We've got exciting plans to bring new life, vibrancy and prosperity to Lincoln city centre.

At Lincolnshire Co-op, we bring together ideas, energy and resources to make life better in our communities. Our Cornhill Quarter scheme aims to do that by providing new services, boosting the local economy and creating an outstanding retail and leisure environment. 

The project will rejuvenate the area around Sincil Street, City Square and the Corn Exchange through a sensitive combination of repair, refurbishment, extension and new development.

We're working alongside local businesses including our agents Banks Long & Co and construction firm Lindum.

Phase one was a £12m programme of painstaking redevelopment and refurbishment at the historic Corn Exchange building. It's now home to tenants including the eccentric Cosy Club restaurant, innovative Danish home store Flying Tiger Copenhagen, men’s formal wear fashion brand Moss Bros. and stationery and lifestyle brand Neon Sheep.

This part of the scheme won Heritage Project of the Year at the 2018 Greater Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards. 

Phase two of the redevelopment is underway and progressing well. It sees the sensitive restoration of shopfronts on Sincil Street and extensions built, supplying new retail space. A bright, attractive walkway through to the Lincoln Central multi-storey car park has been created.

Tenants including Lakeland, coffee roaster and cafe 200 Degrees and clothing brand Seasalt are open. Gym énergie Fitness, located above Lakeland is now open too, along with Lincolnshire Co-op's new Sincil Street Food Store

Meanwhile bakery business Doughnotts is due to open soon in the Cornhill, in a unit next to Lush. 

Cocktail bar The Botanist will join in the third phase of development and will be located together with the boutique Everyman Cinema, opposite the Corn Exchange, overlooking the newly created Exchange Square. Work is ongoing on this part of the development.
