Retail Architecture, Colchester Stanway
The scheme was designed to replace the existing store located on the Tollgate West Retail Park, on the opposite side of London Road. The Sainsbury’s team secured full planning consent for the current scheme which provides sales at both grade & mezzanine levels as well as 875 car parking spaces and the PFS.
The position of the store within the site makes it highly visible from all approach routes. The location together with the scale of the new building has influenced the visual appearance of the store with each elevation, including the roof using its design and prominence to create the “Landmark Gateway Store” desired by the Local Authority.
