BDP submits plans for £300m Meadowhall extension

  • Comment

AJ100 big hitter BDP has submitted plans for a £300 million extension to Sheffield’s Meadowhall shopping centre 

Drawn up for developer British Land, the proposals are the biggest investment in the out-of-town shopping centre since it opened in the 1990s.

The proposed new 30,650m² ‘leisure hall’, with its large glazed roof, will house restaurants, a cinema, gym and a café court and the plans also include a new open-air terrace allowing visitors to dine outside.

Charles Maudsley, head of retail and leisure for British Land, said: ‘Understanding and anticipating our customers’ needs is a key strategic focus area and the Meadowhall Leisure Hall proposals respond to the changing way people live their lives.

’The £60 million refurbishment completing next year [2017], the continued leasing success and Leisure Hall plans combined reinforce our commitment to ensuring Meadowhall remains an outstanding place for modern consumer lifestyles.

‘This extension will create a place with a bolder, broader and deeper leisure mix’

‘The leisure hall will continue Meadowhall’s evolution, creating a place with a bolder, broader and deeper leisure mix. The plans will provide a number of benefits to the entire Sheffield City Region and are complementary to other schemes coming forward which together ensure the region plays a central role in the Northern Powerhouse.’

The plans for the scheme are expected to be considered by Sheffield City Council in spring next year.

Subject to approval, the extension proejct could start on site in 2018 and complete in early 2021.
