intu appoints contractor for intu Broadmarsh redevelopment

intu has today announced the appointment of Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver the £86 million transformation of intu Broadmarsh in Nottingham, ahead of the contractor starting on site in early 2019 to deliver the next phase of the project.

This follows Nottingham City Council’s announcement that it has confirmed its approval to the award of the contract for the intu Broadmarsh redevelopment.

Preparatory work has been ongoing throughout 2018 including the relocation of the centre’s management office and improvements to the Wilkos store to make way for The Light cinema.

Martin Breeden, development director at intu, said, “We are looking forward to this next stage in developing the centre into a great place to eat, relax and play from day time through to evening. The redeveloped intu Broadmarsh will draw people in from further afield and complement the existing retail offer in Nottingham.

“The Light and Hollywood Bowl are both committed to the centre and there is significant interest from a number of retailers and restaurants in taking space. We are creating the most exciting development in the city’s southern area for more than five decades and we continue to work with Nottingham City Council on their plans for the wider Broadmarsh area, which is a fabulous regeneration programme.”

This news follows the opening of the 400,000 sq ft extension to intu Watford last year. Next to launch will be the new £72m leisure development at intu Lakeside later this year. The development will include leisure brands like Nickelodeon, Hollywood Bowl and new mini-golf venue Puttshack.
