CHESTER: Morgan Sindall's urban regeneration division Muse has won a 115m scheme to revamp Chester city centre to create a new Central Business District.

Cheshire West and Chester Council have earmarked the area around Chester Central station for redevelopment.

The Muse deal is for the first two phases of the business district and will involve construction of two six-storey office buildings totalling 150 000 square feet.

A planning application will be submitted in early 2012 with construction set to start in 2013 and the whole 500 000sqft development taking ten years to build.
