Leisure in WIDNES Cheshire – but when ?

23 01 2010

I designed this leisure scheme back in 2007 and got full planning permission for it – however the scheme never got off the ground as the credit crunch took hold and signed up tenants unsigned up and the scheme was left high and dry. Would have been and interesting scheme with cinema , ice rink , bowling alley restaurants and retail.
The design was worked up in sketch-up and e-mailed to my contact in Shanghai – Li Qichang – he arranged for the full rendered visulisations using 3D studio max – this was before I started strapping render tools onto sketch-up.  Whilst the design itself is not that innovative and developer driven -the original design incorporated waste heat recycling from the ice rink to service the bowling alley and rainwater recycling for the roofs – unfortunately a rather unsustainable 600 cars were required in the front car parks.

Will it ever get of the ground in future – who knows??
