Guildford's Tunsgate Quarter opening pushed back

Published at 1:32pm 9th August 2017. (Updated at 4:30pm 9th August 2017)

The opening date for Tunsgate Quarter in Guildford has been pushed back.

The 80,000 sq ft shopping, restaurant and residential site will now open in Feburary 2018, instead of the planned opening in October 2017.

Once complete, it will provide a sophisticated and stylish hub in the heart of the town centre.

Developers say the opening date has been pushed back so that it can be finished to the "highest specification".

Stuart Harris, Commercial Director and Co-Founder of the developer, Queensberry, said: “This will enable us to ensure that both our tenants and visitors enjoy the best quality experience in fantastic surroundings with a great choice of shops, cafes, and restaurants."

Construction work requires both new build and reconfiguration of the space and has included the demolition and rebuilding of large sections of the building such as the installation of a new eye-catching steel and glazed roof.

The scheme includes spectacular views across Guildford Castle and gardens, and a striking new atrium in the middle.

An art deco design by architects Lyons + Sleeman + Hoare will add significant appeal for Guildford, both internally and when viewed externally from the surrounding streets.

The additional construction period will allow additional aesthetic embellishments to be included.

The proposed opening date is expected to be announced in September.
