Meadowhall signs Second Cup as it enters next phase of £60m refurb

British Land, joint owner of Meadowhall, Yorkshire’s premier shopping destination, has announced a new foodservice signing and upsizes totalling over 85,000 sq ft as the £60m refurbishment moves into its next phase.

Second Cup is to open one of its first UK flagship coffee shops on Meadowhall’s Arcade. The 1,560 sq ft café will open later this month as the brand’s ‘black label’ site for the UK, featuring the company’s latest interior design concept.

The signing coincides with the next stage of Meadowhall’s refurbishment. After completion of The Arcade, work is shifting to Meadowhall’s Gallery, High Street and Park Lane, where each mall will be given a different look and feel. The £60m refurbishment completes at the end of the year and is the most significant investment in the centre since it opened.

Richard Crowther, Asset Manager for British Land, said, “With the refurbishment gathering pace, more and more brands are seeking to locate their leading stores at Meadowhall. For many, this means expanding their existing presence, allowing them to stock their full product range and benefit from the placemaking activities British Land brings to all its retail centres.'

The latest signing and upsizes follow recent openings by Nespresso, Barburrito, Coffika, and Pret A Manger.
