The recent opening of the new Sainsbury’s Local store on Far Gosford Street marks the end of eighteen months of construction and the completion of the Gosford Gate development.

Sited adjacent to one of the busiest routes into the city centre, Gosford Gate is a key part of the Far Gosford Street regeneration scheme, a long term project to reinvigorate this historic street and to undo the damage caused by the development of Sky Blue Way in the 1980s.

The scheme aimed to repair the streetscape and create a sense of containment by filling the gap created by the development of the Sky Blue Way traffic island which opened up a wide expanse of highway, creating a sense of physical and perceptual separation.

Now that the project is complete, we have put together a gallery of ‘before and after’ images that show how this gateway location has been completely transformed.
