Major £2.8m revamp of Scarborough Market Hall unveiled
Posted by Nick Hill on 21 Apr 2017
The £2.8m transformation of Scarborough Market Hall and Vaults is being formally unveiled to the public on Friday (21st April) by the Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough, Cllr Simon Green.
The refurbishment of the grade-II listed historic building, which lasted just under a year, has created a modern 21st Century retail space for businesses, shoppers and the local community.
Thanks to a grant from the Coastal Communities Fund, administered by the Big Lottery Fund, the facility has had a complete makeover with brand new units installed on the Market Hall floor and the addition of a new mezzanine level above to create new shops, offices and a food court.
Project design has been carried out by Group Ginger architects and the build by ESH Construction.
The Market Hall and Vaults (on the lower ground floor) remained open for business during the entire project and are now trading Monday to Saturday from 8am until 5pm, including bank holidays.
David Kelly, Scarborough Borough Council regeneration manager said: “We are absolutely delighted that the ambitious programme of transformation we set out to achieve has been realised.
“It has resulted in an impressive retail destination with high specification units for businesses, a lovely environment for customers and a diverse, welcoming space to bring the whole community together.
“It also marks the start of the regeneration of that part of the town centre, which we hope to see continue and play an active part in throughout the coming years.
“I’d like to thank the existing businesses for their patience and cooperation throughout the refurbishment and extend a warm welcome to the new businesses joining us at the start of this exciting new chapter.
“We look forward to working with them all to ensure that Scarborough Market Hall and Vaults grows from strength to strength.“
