Wheatsheaf Works to be redeveloped

Last summer I blogged about the Wheatsheaf Works - the vast former Co-operative Wholesale Society boot and shoe factory in Knighton Fields Road East, Leicester.

Today comes news that the buildings are to be redeveloped by by Urban Rhythm - the Market Harborough based regeneration arm of the Leicestershire housebuilders The Hazelton Group.

Insider Media Limited quotes Richard Hazelton, the commercial director of the parent company, as saying:
“We’re sure our refurbishment of the grade-II listed buildings, which have been left derelict for the past ten years, and development of the surrounding site will act as a catalyst to draw homeowners to the area and help to regenerate the local community."
