Demolition of old Woolworths store in Dunstable will soon be complete and then the development of 26 apartments and new retail space on the ground floor will start.
You can’t have missed the scaffolding and hoarding that has appeared in front of the old Woolworths store on High Street South a few weeks ago. This store has been empty for a number of years and located in an area where there were a number of empty shops it is a welcome sight to see work start at last.
Whilst it might look like not much has happened since if you take a look from the rear of the store you will see that most of it has now been demolished.
With our office and car parking backing onto the site I am in regular contact with the developers and builders who are very confident in Dunstable as a town which is now showing growth with a number of large companies now choosing to invest in the area.
They expect the development to be complete in 12-18 months and like other housebuilders and developers who have planning permission in the Dunstable and Houghton Regis they will be providing much needed housing for the growing local workforce as well as the families looking to relocate to the area from London
