Sheffield City Council has approved plans by BDP for a £300 million extension to Sheffield’s Meadowhall shopping centre
The scheme, for developer British Land, is 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. The plans also include an open-air terrace allowing visitors to dine outside.
BDP architect director Garry Wilding said: ‘The leisure hall extension will create a new identity for Meadowhall and provide a sequence of dynamic dining and entertainment spaces under a landmark glazed roof, significantly improving the customer’s experience of visiting the centre.
’The project will follow on from our extensive interior refurbishment of the centre itself, which is due to complete later this year, creating a new holistic vision for Meadowhall.’
The extension project is expected to complete in 2020.
