Developer Hammerson is funding a 14 screen cineworld cinema, nine new restaurants, improved bingo facilities and new retail opportunities at the south side centre, which have been designed by BDP.
First phase works will entail demolition of the last remaining units at the Pollok Centre together with an existing bingo hall to create a new western entrance and improve connections to the bus station.
Guy Wells, development manager at Hammerson said: "The start of work on site is another major milestone in the delivery of the new leisure quarter at Silverburn which will firmly establish the centre as the premier retail experience in Glasgow and beyond."
The new extension is set to open its doors to the public in spring 2015.
