intu reveals proposals for multi-million pound redevelopment at intu Broadmarsh

Intu, the leading owner and manager of prime regional shopping centres in the UK, has revealed its proposals for the multi-million pound redevelopment of Nottingham’s intu Broadmarsh shopping centre, as part of the formal public consultation process.

Since May last year, more than 1,000 customers have been giving their views and ideas on what the new look centre could deliver. Having taken the public’s views into consideration, intu is now able to reveal its’ proposals for the redevelopment and will be displaying these at the exhibition hub on intu Broadmarsh’s lower mall. Members of the public will be able to see what intu has planned and express their views on the proposals by completing a survey in centre or online.

The redevelopment proposals include:

A new catering offer, from grab and go options to restaurants
A multi-screen cinema and new leisure facilities
A new open street extending Bridlesmith Gate to focus on luxury retailing
An improved new route through the centre providing direct access between the train station and the rest of the city
High quality modern finishes throughout the centre

Martin Breeden, regional director of intu, said: “We are really pleased to unveil our proposals for the redevelopment of intu Broadmarsh. We know there is demand from tenants for new spaces in Nottingham and we are already having discussions with some key brands.

“intu is committed to the city of Nottingham and we have been working closely with Nottingham City Council to ensure that our proposals for intu Broadmarsh complement the City Council’s vision for the city and in particular their plans for the southern part of Nottingham,” added Martin Breeden.

intu is also investing in a £40 million remodelling and refurbishment project at intu Victoria Centre to deliver new interiors, new entrances and a new two tiered catering cluster around the Grade II listed Clock tower. The upgrade which will be completed later this year has successfully attracted top retailers such as Superdry, Urban Outfitters and a new flagship River Island store as well as key catering names handmade burger Co, Coast 2 Coast, Tortilla and Ed’s Easy Diner.
