The hub of a thriving community.
The Tonsley Innovation District’s masterplan recognises its regional importance and respects the manufacturing heritage of the site. A prime example is the adaptive re-use of the Main Assembly Building (MAB), a central feature at Tonsley.
The building features contemporary public spaces including internal forests and exhibition and meeting spaces with eating, lounge areas and Wi-Fi hotspots.
A network of internal streets gives priority to pedestrians and cyclists while still providing vehicle access.
The heart and soul of the MAB is the Town Square — a vibrant meeting place and the centre of Tonsley’s social activity featuring shops, cafes, services and facilities.
