Award for super market

[Excerpt from Stockport Times - 19 Oct 06]
Stockport Market Place has received recognition at a national award ceremony.
The redevelopment of Staircase House and Shawcross Fold has scooped the prestigious Best Practice Award from the British Urban Regeneration Association (BURA).
A spokesperson for BURA said: "This is a very effective refurbishment of almost-derelict properties and empty sites into an attractive new quarter which now boasts a rich mix of uses.
"Staircase House has become a major visitor attraction and the affordable housing is the first new housing built within the town centre for the past 30 years."
