Welcome to Building Partnerships and Alumno Developments’ website about proposals to regenerate the site of the old Queen Street bus station and St. James’ House. These include:

  • Regeneration and investment
    A significant investment in Colchester that will bring new life to a disused area, and support economic growth of the town centre.
  • A mixed development
    The proposals include student accommodation, a new hotel, commercial space for shops or businesses and improvements to public space. These will create new opportunities for local people and businesses alike.
  • Historical context
    Conscious of Colchester’s heritage, while also contributing to regeneration in the town centre, the project team is considering plans for a heritage trail through the site.

We want to hear the community’s views on our proposals and are keen to work with residents, business and local groups as we develop our plans.
