SHREDDED WHEAT – full of goodness for Welwyn Garden City

The former Shredded Wheat factory in the heart of Welwyn Garden City is being developed into a high-quality mixed-use scheme with over 1400 new homes, with a mix of one, two and three-bedroom properties including 110 retirement living units and 31% affordable housing.
In addition a new Civic Building with Wellness Centre incorporating GP surgery, physiotherapy, Psychotherapist and a variety of health related services will be provided plus a Performing Arts facility to include a Drama, Dance and Music Academy with a fully refurbished Production Hall. Also 63,000 sq.ft of work space for existing businesses, small and medium-sized enterprises and start-ups.
A Café and restaurant quarter will be positioned around a public realm area with a stylish Silos ‘Rooftop Bar’ which will provide panoramic views. This area will also house an Art Hub and Museum designed by Tate Modern’s architect, Jamie Fobert, to create exhibition, studio and gallery spaces housing collections of Art and Works by Hertfordshire and international artists. There will also be a museum space to house a Classic Motorbike collection and curate a celebration of local historical businesses including Shredded Wheat and The Welwyn Studios.
The site will cover over 7 acres of public realm, piazzas, landscaped areas and public squares plus a Sensory Garden designed by the Gardening for the Disabled Trust.
The developer has committed to over £12 million in planning obligations and Section 106 contributions along with a £750,000 contribution to the Railway footbridge refurbishment and the upgrading of the passenger lift – plus substantial investment into retained Listed Buildings and structures.
