AJ100 giant 3DReid has unveiled the latest in series of schemes the practice has designed for the huge Lakeside shopping centre in Thurrock, Essex
Having already submitted plans for an £180 million, 30,000m² expansion of the northern edge of the mall in January, the practice has now revealed proposals for a ‘major new leisure space’ focused around a public square.
3DReid’s head of retail, Mark Anders, said: ‘As part of our major extension to the retail element, we are looking at improvement of the public realm including the creation of a significant new leisure destination combining active pursuits, bars and cafés and landscaped spaces.
‘The aim is create a truly engaging destination for the community and visitors alike.’
The project is backed by the centre’s owners Capital Shopping Centres.
