Meadowhall revamp reaches finishing line

Meadowhall transformation 1

British Land has completed its £60m refurbishment of Sheffield shopping centre Meadowhall, following a two-year programme of works.

During this time, 70 brands invested £40m in store upgrades. 

The refurbishment includes the creation of four districts, as well as new customer seating and double-height flagship formats.

New openings within the past two years include online retailer Joe Browns, as well as Michael Kors, Flannels, Urban Decay, Skinny Dip, Tag Heuer, iSmash, Diesel, Joules, Jack Wills and Schuh Kids.

Retailers to have upgraded their existing presences at the centre include Primark, River Island, Sports Direct and JD Sports.

The refurbishment will be followed by the £300m development of a leisure hall extension, which was granted planning consent in a unanimous vote by Sheffield City Council’s planning committee in September.

This will add 330,000 sq ft of new catering and leisure facilities to the shopping centre.

Claire Barber, head of Meadowhall at British Land, said: “Meadowhall is a very different place as a result of our investment. It is lighter and brighter; the space is more modern and the offer is significantly enhanced so it is the first choice for shoppers across the region.”

More than 1,200 jobs were created to deliver the refurbishment, with 35% of the workforce living in Sheffield and 41% overall from the surrounding region.
