Plans to replace shopping centre with student housing!


Before The Core, there was Schofields Department Store 1901-1996. The Core Shopping Centre was first constructed in 1987. Now plans have been submitted to the council for approval to demolish the Centre on The Headrow and replace it with 36,500 sq ft of retail and commercial space on ground floor and student apartments above.

There will be up to 800 student accommodation flats.
