Cornhill Quarter


We're bringing 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 is rejuvenating 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.

The sensitive restoration of shopfronts on Sincil Street has also seen 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 brands Seasalt, Phase Eight, Whistles and Hobbs, gym énergie Fitness, bakery business Doughnotts and Neon Sheep are open.

Cocktail bar The Botanist is located together with the boutique Everyman Cinema, opposite the Corn Exchange, overlooking the newly created Exchange Square.

And our Lincolnshire Co-op food store and pharmacy on Sincil Street are now both trading.
