The new Chester Market will be the cornerstone of Chester’s £70m Northgate development, the biggest development in Chester for decades. Chester Northgate is not a new shopping centre; it is a development of open streets, parades and plazas that will integrate seamlessly with the surrounding parts of the city centre; including a new: six-screen Picturehouse cinema, cafés, bars and restaurants, multi-storey parking and coworking office spaces.

Due to open in early 2022, it will build on the success of the adjacent Storyhouse cultural centre and complement the existing businesses on Northgate Street. The old library frontage will be transformed into a new arcade and provide a stunning arched entrance into the development. The scheme will also create a new public square for the city, accessible from Hunter Street and Princess Street, linking the new market, Storyhouse and the Town Hall.
