£22m revamp of Rotherham market granted planning permission.

December 2022

We are pleased to announce that the £22m revamp of Rotherhams market has been granted planning permission. The renovations will build upon the existing mix of shops and services as well as the addition of a new food hub and dining area on the first floor. This will provide a key link between the indoor and outdoor markets, potentially allowing opening hours to extend into the evening.

The outdoor market will become a flexible space which can be used for exhibitions and events when required. The market will be connected to the town centre by a new terraced public area, opening the frontage to Eastwood Lane and Drummond Street

Construction on site is scheduled to commence in the Summer of 2023.

The team at GSA look forward to working with everyone at Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to bring this exciting project to life.

GSA TEAM visit Madrid Markets…

December 2016


GSA TEAM visit Madrid Markets

December 2016

In the lead-up to Christmas, Marta Lorzano led the GSA team on a hugely enjoyable study tour of the rich diversity of contemporary and traditional Spanish markets in Madrid.

Our visit enabled us to experience vastly contrasting markets, from the more tourist-based San Miguel (not dis-similar to the current manifestation of our own, local, Borough Market, in Southwark) – to the San Fernando ‘Neighborhood Market’ in Lavapies.

A spectacular example of a modern market that works both as a ‘destination’ for locals and tourists alike, was San Anton. The quality of the building and the creation of well-orientated, flexible and robust trading areas created a successful mix of retail, and produce, with a strong food and beverage offer.

The trip reaffirmed many of the key principles we have come to perceive as critical to successful marketplace trading, both in the UK and further afield.

Ultimately, however, there is – and can be – no set formula.  A successful market, by its very nature, will always be a product of its place and people.

Our team took tremendous inspiration from the variety and mix of Madrid’s markets and we continue to build on our-research based understanding of markets as a whole…
