Construction on stalled Bradford shopping centre to begin in January

Construction on the stalled Westfield’s Bradford Broadway shopping centre will begin in January, with the site expected to open in time for Christmas shopping in 2015.

The £260m centre, which is expected to create 1,500 construction jobs and 2,500 jobs, will feature a 106,000 sq ft Debenhams and a 63,000 sq ft Marks & Spencer as anchor retailers, alongside 70 additional shops and restaurants, including Next, River Island, Topshop and Topman.

Construction on the 570,000 sq ft Broadway shopping centre halted in 2008 because of the economic crisis.

Michael Gutman, Westfield managing director UK/Europe and new markets, said:“Westfield is delighted to announce the start of construction having remained steadfastly committed to delivering the Bradford development following cessation of work in 2008 as a result of the global financial crisis.”
