The redevelopment at intu Broadmarsh is gaining momentum with space being created inside the centre for The Light’s nine screen cinema by moving the centre management office to new premises.
The intu Broadmarsh team will now be based at Severn’s House on Middle Pavement – owned by intu and Nottingham City Council – following an extensive refurbishment delivered by Bowmer & Kirkland.
The 652 sq m building is now also home to intu’s marketing suite for the redevelopment, a manned reception, office space and site accommodation for the contractors delivering the project.
General manager for intu in Nottingham, Nigel Wheatley, said: “This is another step towards the redevelopment of intu Broadmarsh and will help us to create a centre with a new mix of places to shop, eat, relax and play for our customers to enjoy, including The Light cinemas and Hollywood Bowl, both of which are already committed to the redeveloped centre.
“Preparatory works have been underway for a number of months and we are looking forward to seeing the redevelopment of intu Broadmarsh progress.”
The redevelopment of intu Broadmarsh will complement the existing retail and leisure offering at intu Victoria Centre as well as the wider city, bringing something new to Nottingham and offering the best experience to customers and retailers.
intu has worked with Nottingham City Council to align with their vision and to ensure that the development works in collaboration with the rest of the city, improving access and connectivity throughout.
Nigel added: “The transformation of intu Broadmarsh will bring new retail and leisure brands to the city, encouraging more people to visit Nottingham throughout the day and into the evening. Not only that, but a new entrance on Middle Hill and open street at Drury Walk will make it even easier to get around the city, improving the experience for visitors.”
Work to prepare the centre for the redevelopment have been underway since last year, with the refurbishment works of Severn’s House starting on-site in August 2017.
