Councillors greenlight Meadowhall’s £300m development

Meadowhall has gained planning consent for a £300m extension, which will measure 330,000 sq ft.

The “Leisure Hall” extension, which will integrate with the front of the existing centre, will feature dining and entertaining options.

These include a new cinema, café court, gym, open-air terrace and space for leisure, event and community use.

The centre, which is undergoing a separate £60m refurbishment, draws in 24 million visitors annually.

Meadowhall said 40 retailers have invested more than £34m in redesigning and refitting existing stores alongside the refurbishment. These include All Saints, Hollister, House of Fraser and Hugo Boss, with another 30 “currently underway”.

All 61 occupiers with leases due to expire renewed their tenancies in the year to June 2017, with eight of these retailers upsizing within the centre in advance of the refurbishment’s completion.

A total of 30 new brands have signed at Meadowhall over the last 18 months, including Sports Direct’s upmarket offering Flannels.

Charles Maudsley, head of retail, leisure and residential at British Land, said: “We […] will now work with our partners and other stakeholders over the coming months on the detail of the Leisure Hall to ensure Meadowhall delivers the maximum benefits for customers, retailers and the wider Sheffield City Region.

“The refurbishment completing later this year, our continued leasing success, significant store investment by retailers and the Leisure Hall proposals are all significant steps in the centre’s continued evolution.”
