Lat­est im­age of the new Coli­seum and Her­itage Cen­tre

Oldham Advertiser - - #OLDHAMLIVE -

THIS is what the new Old­ham Coli­seum and ad­join­ing Her­itage Cen­tre could look like.

The Coli­seum The­atre and Old­ham coun­cil have been work­ing to­gether with ar­chi­tects on the am­bi­tious plans for the new fa­cil­ity on Union Street. It would see the Grade II-listed for­mer li­brary build­ing re­stored to its for­mer glory and the cre­ation of an ad­join­ing new build to house the the­atre.

The artists im­pres­sion – cre­ated by project ar­chi­tects, Me­canoo – have been re­leased be­fore the for­mal plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for the de­vel­op­ment is sub­mit­ted this week.

Coun leader Jim McMa­hon said: “This lat­est vi­sion is the re­sult of care­ful work which aims to showcase the beauty of our fu­ture – an eye­catch­ing mod­ern Coli­seum The­atre build­ing – in a set­ting that fully com­ple­ments and doesn’t com­pete with the grand for­mer li­brary build­ing that will be given new life as a her­itage cen­tre.”

Coli­seum chief ex­ec­u­tive and artis­tic di­rec­tor Kevin Shaw added: “This de­vel­op­ment will help put Old­ham firmly on the map.

“It is hoped that, sub­ject to per­mis­sion and fund­ing, con­struc­tion will be­gin in 2016.”
