Redrock Stockport: Winner of the Carbuncle Cup 2018

The award no one wants to win goes to town centre regeneration project in Stockport

Redrock Stockport, a £45m leisure complex and car park, has won the 2018 Carbuncle Cup.

The town centre development, which contains a cinema, shops, restaurants and a gym as well as a multi-storey car park, was designed by BDP for the local council.

It is part of a wider £1bn regeneration project for the ailing community south of Manchester, but the judges said the shed-like building “ridiculed” the town centre it had been intended to rescue.
