Cheshire West and Chester Council has signed House of Fraser and a four-star Crowne Plaza hotel and spa for the Chester Northgate development in Chester city centre.
House of Fraser has signed an agreement to open a new 100,000-sq ft store while an agreement has also been signed with the owners of the Crowne Plaza hotel to relocate within the Chester Northgate development. The new 167-bed hotel will also feature a rooftop restaurant and will include both a spa and a 600-capacity conference facility, the biggest in the city.
As well as the department store and hotel, Chester Northgate will provide a six-screen Picturehouse cinema, around 70 stores, cafés and restaurants, more than 70 homes, and the city’s largest car park.
Chester Northgate is being developed by Cheshire West and Chester Council, assisted by development manager Rivington Land.
