Councillor Alan Mosley from Shropshire Council said the Flax Mill Maltings redevelopment will become a "centre for learning" for the Shropshire community.
He said: "We're going to put learning facilities in here, conference facilities, children's play facilities, cafe, restaurant and you'll see the open space that can be used for performance, dance and music.
"Whatever the community wants to to here we will have the capacity to facilitate it we hope."
