Having demolished the previous Broadmarsh Car Park and Bus Station in 2018, the modern and new Broadmarsh Car Park building started in 2019. We expect to open in Autumn 2021.
It will complement the reopened Nottingham Castle, Central Library, Nottingham College City Hub and new, greener, open public spaces along Collin Street and near Nottingham College.
The new Car Park building is part of the wider £2 billion Southside redevelopment programme to transform the face of the southern city centre. The wider plans, bringing more offices, accommodation, tourist attractions and better connectivity will boost the local economy, bring jobs to the city, attract visitors and extra spending to the city each year.
The new Broadmarsh Car Park will provide over 1,200 parking spaces, including charging points for electric cars and disabled parking. We have the infrastructure in place to increase these as the usage of electric cars increases. The roof of the new building is covered in a photo-voltaic farm of 720 solar panels which it is expected will generate around 190,000 kWh of electricity in the first year of operation – enough to supply energy to over 50 domestic homes all year round.
The new Car Park will bring people into the heart of the city with a refreshed public space and new shopping and leisure opportunities. The new Bus Station will be offering both local and national travel to customers and an entrance to the new greener public spaces surrounding the area.
The new Car Park building will host Nottingham’s Central Library, which you can read more about here.
Alongside Central Library will be a series of retail units on the new pedestrianised Collin Street. These offer a new public space and relaxed atmosphere in the city centre.
