The Gamechangers – Glass Works

Barnsley in Yorkshire may be an unlikely setting for a property Gamechanger but, as we show in our latest property sector video, that’s exactly what is taking place in the very centre of the town.

Work begins on the Glass Works project

Good Call Media’s growing expertise in the property sector has been illustrated by the development of The Gamerchanger series in conjunction with the Yorkshire Property Awards, organised by Variety the Children’s Charity, and in the latest of our videos we spotlight the amazing work that is being carried out to transform the town centre of Barnsley while trade there carries on as normal.

The Glass Works includes Cineworld and Superbowl UK as well as a range of new shops and family friendly restaurants. At the heart of it will be Barnsley Market, rated one of the best markets in Yorkshire and a state-of-the-art community facility and library which will look over a stunning new public square. Barnsley town centre will be transformed into a place where people can shop, socialise and relax, both during the day and into the evening.

Over the next three years visitors will see this transformation taking shape; the re-housing of the famous markets, hoardings around key areas of the development and a changing landscape, as buildings are demolished to make way for the new scheme.

Market traders have been relocated to light and airy purpose built temporary market buildings whilst their new home is ready and have been well received by both shoppers and the traders.The flagship in The Glass Works, the new £5.3m library and community space, will be the first part of the development to complete in autumn 2018, providing the community with a state-of-the-art facility in which to learn, unwind and socialise.

Throughout the transformation the town centre remains open for business. The markets are bustling; the major high street names continue to thrive, town centre events are drawing the crowds, and the stunning Victorian Arcade and wide range of new independent businesses are bringing people in to the town.
