The new Chester Market will be the cornerstone of Chester’s £72m Northgate development, the biggest development in Chester for decades. Chester Northgate is not a new shopping centre; it is a development of open streets, an arcade and square 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 office spaces.

Northgate will build on the success of the adjacent Storyhouse cultural centre and complement the existing businesses on Northgate Street. The old library frontage has been transformed into a new Coachworks Arcade to provide a stunning arched entrance into the development. The scheme will also create a new public Exchange Square for the city, accessible from Hunter Street and Princess Street, linking the new market, Storyhouse and the Town Hall.
