£45m New Office Development could bring 1000 workers to Blackpool


The Talbot Gateway development is the biggest project in Blackpool right now and the fifth phase includes a new £45m office development which is earmarked for the Apollo 2000 site.


Major regeneration project 

Blackpool is in the midst of a major regeneration project right now and the news that the fifth phase of the Talbot Gateway development will include another major office on the site of the former Apollo 2000 store has been welcomed by business leaders. This scheme would result in an additional 1000 workers being based in Blackpool town centre and this would in turn increase footfall for many local businesses including cafes, bars and shops.


High skilled employment opportunities for Blackpool

Blackpool Council, alongside partner Muse are in discussions with an organisation which is looking to occupy and develop the vacant site. At the time of writing, the name and nature of the organisation hasn’t been revealed but it is known that the planned scheme would bring to the town some high skilled employment opportunities who will be working on behalf of a government body. This in itself suggests that these jobs may be civil service related although this is purely speculation at this stage.


Additional workers and students

The new office development will be part of the fifth phase of the Talbot Gateway project which has brought upwards of 8000 students and additional workers into the town centre. Talbot Gateway has been developed on land which was previously derelict and desolate and in need of major regeneration.
