The Cornhill Quarter

Corn Exchange

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, with timings on track for an Autumn 2018 opening. 

It will see 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 will also be created.

A planning application has also been submitted for the four-screen Everyman Cinema. If planning is granted, it will be opposite the Corn Exchange, overlooking the newly created Exchange Square.
