The frame of the nine-storey building housing the new Town Hall and grade A commercial offices has been completed.
The landmark building, which is currently on-schedule for completion at the end of this year, has recently reached its full height.
The wider regeneration scheme, located at the eastern end of The Boulevard in Crawley town centre, also includes 273 flats (of which 109 will be affordable), a new public square, public realm improvements, ground floor commercial space for a restaurant/café and district energy centre. It is a joint development between Crawley Borough Council and Westrock.
The entire redevelopment will transform a major town centre opportunity site. The new Town Hall will:
- Secure the council’s finances through the ability to generate new revenue from commercial office tenants whilst achieving significant savings on the council’s current running costs
- Provide a better, fit-for-purpose building for customers, staff and councillors
- Contribute to achieving the council’s wider ambitions around affordable housing, post-Covid economic recovery, and tackling climate change
The Town Hall redevelopment is a vital part of securing the council’s ability to afford high-quality services, while helping regenerate the town centre, delivering new affordable homes, and reducing the town’s carbon emissions. To be making such great progress is fantastic news for the town.
