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 travel agent Thomas Cook.

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. The first tenant - Lakeland - opened in November 2018.

This part of the project sees the sensitive restoration of shopfronts on Sincil Street and extensions supplying new retail space. A bright, attractive walkway through to the Lincoln Central multi-storey car park is being created.

Speciality coffee roaster and wholesaler 200 Degrees will bring its handcrafted fresh food and artisan coffee to phase two of the Cornhill Quarter when it opens in Sincil Street this March. There’ll even be a barista school on its mezzanine floor offering training for coffee enthusiasts of all levels.

Clothing brand Seasalt is set to bring a touch of Cornwall to the city when it opens in Sincil Street, also in phase two.

Cocktail bar The Botanist will join in the third phase of development and will be located together with the boutique Everyman Cinema.

A planning application has been approved for the four-screen Everyman Cinema. This will be opposite the Corn Exchange, overlooking the newly created Exchange Square.
