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.
Phase one was a £12m programme of painstaking redevelopment and refurbishment at the historic Corn Exchange building, which is now home to a variety of tenants including restaurants, home-wear and fashion stores, and more.
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.
Exciting businesses in the area include a coffee shop, clothing stores, a cinema, restaurants and and state-of-the-art gym as well as a Lincolnshire Co-op food store on Sincil Street.
The project has been recognised at the Greater Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards, receiving the 2021 Development of the Year Award (over £5m).
In partnership with the University of Lincoln, we're transforming The Former Barbican Hotel on St Mary’s Street. The site will be redeveloped into a much-needed creative and social space for the city, reopening in 2023 as The Barbican Creative Hub.
