Braehead expansion plans mooted
August 20 2012
A Proposal of Application Notice filed with Renfrewshire Council outlines an ambition to create a new arena, department store and hotel at the riverfront site – alongside an upgrade to its existing transport interchange to facilitate a planned Fastlink service.
These facilities, designed by Chapman Taylor, will be arranged around a new civic square and offer a greatly expanded leisure option for visitors including ice and dry sports events, concerts, other entertainment shows, exhibitions and conferences.
General Manager of Braehead Shopping Centre, Peter Beagley said: “Our investment will create much-needed jobs for local people and deliver a wider choice of retail and leisure for our customers, as well as significant improvements to public transport and public space.”
A full planning application is expected to be lodged later in the year following consultation with shoppers and the local community.
The plans coincide with plans by Retail Property Holdings to similarly extend Silverburn's offer.
