The Grafton Centre

This Altrincham shopping centre complex, featuring ground floor retail and a 6 storey office block, was tired and sparsely occupied. As project architect, Ellen Kitson was instrumental in bringing the building up-to-date by converting the upper levels of office space into a hotel, and re-organising the retail spaces into units of much more appeal to tenants, with Home Bargains taking the largest unit. The centre is now fully let.
