Mills and boom

  • Comment

American retail giant the Mills Corporation is frightening urbanists north of the border with plans for a 200,000m 2 retail mall on the old Ravenscraig steelworks.

If permitted, the scheme would wipe out retail environments in a huge blast zone around the site, including the centre of East Kilbride, owned by (that man again) John Ritblat's British Land. Look out for a planning battle royal - I am told Mills makes Walmart look like a friendly vicar.
