Wakefield Westgate

Merchant Gate Mixed Use Development, Wakefield, commissioned by English Cities Fund UK Ltd.
As joint masterplanners with Carey Jones Architects, Camlin Lonsdale recognised that the restructuring of the south west quadrant of the city centre offered the opportunity to improve legibility and strengthen civic identity by responding to Wakefield’s distinctive skyline. New development plots on the former dairy site are organised to create and frame key vistas to landmark buildings from the soon to be relocated train station site and public realm reasserted over city centre vehicular access.
