A winning design by architect Hall McKnight has been selected from a shortlist of five designs that will transform the Cornhill; described as the heart of Ipswich's town centre. The regeneration project was sparked by former Marks & Spencer and legendary retailer, Sir Stuart Rose, in a presentation about the town. A stunning steel and glass tower will be placed infront of the Town Hall and will transform into a delicate chinese lantern-style illumination by night. The plans also host space for a thriving market area which will house not only traditional market stalls but artesan and specialist craft market stalls too; outdoor cafes and events...perhaps even the odd street performer too! With the town centre a mere 10 minutes walk from the Salthouse Hotel we are very excited about these plans to offer our guests a fantastic shopping experience.
