High Point for Preston’s Tallest Building

Contractors working on Preston’s tallest residential block have hit a key milestone after reaching the highest point in the construction process. 

And developer Heaton Group Developments Limited (Heaton Group’s contracting arm) celebrated the ‘topping off’ at the Exchange, in the centre of Preston with a special event. 

Once completed the 16-storey apartment block will have 200 high specification one, two and three bedroom units spread over three separate blocks, along with a host of on-site amenities for residents to enjoy including a gym, concierge service and a fabulous roof top garden. 

The project team for The Exchange includes DAY Architectural Ltd, Brennan Consulting Limited, QED, OFR Consultants and Red Acoustics.

John Heaton, Managing Director of The Heaton Group said: “The Exchange is part of our four-year Preston Masterplan, along with our other completed development Bishopsgate Garden, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the build so far. 

“Preston is undergoing such a transformation at the moment and going from strength to strength, it really is the city to be in, and we’re excited to be part of it.” 

The topping off ceremony was held to mark the placing of the last beam at the top of the structure during its construction. Along with Preston Council’s Chief Executive John Heaton and Preston’s Mayor, Councillor Neil Darby, North End footballing hero Graham Alexander also attended the ribbon cutting event. 

Councillor Darby said: “There is a real buzz around the city at the moment. We’ve got private and public sectors working well together, delivering exciting projects and boosting both the cultural and economic landscape of the city. This is exactly what our City Investment Plan and the Harris Quarter Regeneration set out to achieve.” 

The Exchange will deliver a high standard of city centre living, right in the heart of the city’s newest emerging neighbourhood. As well as the residential units The Exchange will also have retail and office space available on the ground level. 

John Heaton added: “Place, communities and people are important to us at The Heaton Group. We don’t see buildings just as units where people live or work. To us it’s where people create their homes and their communities. It’s where they live and work and socialise and it’s vital that we create and provide the best developments we can for people to be able to do this.” 

The Exchange is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2023. For further information go to
