GNA take immense pride in announcing that Etruscan Square, Stoke-on-Trent, has now been approved by committee. Alongside Arcadis, Savills, Affinity, ITP and Marrons Planning, we have developed a 10 year masterplan, placing the public realm at the heart of the development. The plan offers a mix of public squares and routes with active frontages, which respond to the existing and future context of the area, whilst improving previously neglected heritage areas and connecting Hanley Town Centre in a more sustainable way.

The approved scheme consists of mixed-use spaces, both residential and commercial, a 138-bed hotel and a new 3600 person arena, all of which aim to provide future employment and increase footfall within Hanley. Adopting the 15min neighbourhood model, it provides easy pedestrian access to existing local facilities such as the Potteries Museum, Victoria Hall and the surrounding shops , entertainment spaces and public transport.

Each of the buildings have been designed with a sustainable approach, prioritising a fabric first method. The Masterplan takes into account the future homes needs as well as seeking a net zero agenda to help meet government targets by 2050.

Etruscan Square will provide much needed city centre living, stimulate growth and aid in employment to help with the shortage in job vacancies within Stoke-On-Trent, through creating jobs in retail, hospitality and more.

GNA are thrilled to play a part in the regeneration of the city, and can’t wait to see how this collaborative vision will take shape.
