Real estate developer British Land has revealed details of a £300M project to expand Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield, UK.

The 30,000 sq m proposed Leisure Hall will include a wide range of dining and entertainment options, with new restaurants, a new café court, a gym, and other leisure spaces.

The new hall and existing centre are set to create a new multi-levelled, landscaped mall with internal and external spaces for promotional and community uses. It has also been designed to accommodate large outdoor events including live music.

British Land’s head of retail and leisure Charles Maudsley said: “We are continuing to drive Meadowhall’s evolution to ensure it remains an outstanding place for modern consumer lifestyles.

“This significant step change in the scheme’s leisure provision will contribute to Sheffield’s continuation as a driving force behind the Northern Powerhouse. This is a very exciting time and we look forward to working with Sheffield City Council to help ensure Sheffield’s future success.”

British Land, the co-owner of Meadowhall, is starting a public consultation on the expansion proposals. If the proposals are approved, construction work will commence in 2018.

The hall is expected to open to visitors in late 2020 or early 2021, creating more than 1,000 jobs in the region.
