UK-based practice Cartwright Pickard Architects has won planning consent for the first phase of the cultural and civic quarter in Doncaster, UK.

The £300m ($441m) centre will house Doncaster's new council offices in a five-storey, 157,500ft² building.

The project is being delivered by Muse Developments and will include the town's first public square and a new performance venue, which is expected to receive planning permission in October.

Work on the sustainable building will begin in November, according to doncasterfreepress.co.uk.

The four-phase ten-year plan also includes proposals for a four-star boutique hotel, housing, a new library, a swimming pool and leisure facilities.
