The Crown Estate confirms the start of works at Crowngate Shopping Centre
The Crown Estate is today making public its plans to invest in the Angel Place entrance to Crowngate Shopping Centre in Worcester.
The entrance works form part of The Crown Estate’s commitment to build on the reputation of Crowngate Shopping Centre and Worcester as a great place to shop, work and visit.
The works represent a £1.5million investment by The Crown Estate in Worcester; following the improvement works to the surrounding public realm and marketplace, creating a better environment for shoppers.
The Crown Estate’s letting agents at Crowngate are MMX retail and Savills Bristol.
Nicole Campbell, Asset Manager at The Crown Estate, said: “Our plans to refurbish the façade of Angel Place will help enhance this part of the city and create a more welcoming entrance to Friary walk. We believe our investment into Friary Walk will benefit the whole city as it will attract more visitors and more businesses to Worcester, creating opportunities for existing businesses as well as giving an opportunity for new brands to come to the area.”
David Beebee, Managing Director at adi Building & Refurbishment, added: “We are delighted to work with The Crown Estate and Crowngate Shopping Centre to deliver a scheme that will contribute to the continuing redevelopment of Worcester City Centre. We look forward to bringing our construction and refurbishment expertise to enhance the experience of visitors to the shopping centre.”

The works are due to commence in March and will include new windows and a refurbished shopping centre elevation at Angel Place, modernising the entrance and introducing a new window box with improved signage throughout.Back to Media & Insights
