Centre Square, Middlesbrough

Colour were appointed by Middlesbrough Council to develop a deliverable masterplan at Centre Square - a key piece of Middlesbrough Council’s £68m investment prospectus which plans to create 5,000 jobs across the town, with up to 1,500 at Centre Square.

Our vision for creating a beating heart of Middlesbrough Centre was based on :

1. New Civic centrepiece that portrays a dynamic image and character of Middlesbrough
2. An aspirational, desirable, intergenerational and family-orientated destination where something is always going on
3. A generator of people – a hub where the community naturally comes together
4. Infrastructure, connectivity and conditions to naturally animate the town centre 16-18 hours a day
5. A platform and improved key linkages for other pending town centre projects and events
6. Part of a strategy to dispel any negative perceptions of Middlesbrough and the region using urban experience

Colour worked closely with many departments of Middlesbrough Council stakeholders at the Middlesbrough Museum of Modern Art (MiMA), Teesside University, the Combined Courts, the Chamber of Commerce and Seymour Architecture to develop a deliverable masterplan framework that would accommodate new office development at Centre Square East with redevelopment of the Town Hall, council offices, integration of MiMA and connectivity with the retail town centre.

The masterplan was launched by Councilor Rooney for Middlesbrough Council in February 2019.
