Developer intu has got the thumbs up for a £150m transformation of the Broadmarsh shopping centre in Nottingham.  Construction work could now start on site as early as the first half of 2016 for completion by the end of 2018.

Martin Breeden, regional director of intu, said: “We’re delighted that our plans for intu Broadmarsh have received approval.

“Along with our work at intu Victoria Centre, we now have a great opportunity to create something special for Nottingham. We look forward to working together with the Council to move the project forward.

“Our plans for intu Broadmarsh will build further on that progress, bringing new streetscapes, a new cinema and a wider retail and catering offer.  We have been in the city for over 40 years with intu Victoria Centre and are fully committed to creating something special for Nottingham.”

The architect is Benoy, which also designed St David’s shopping centre in Cardiff, jointly owned by intu and Land Securities. Gleeds is acting as project manager.  Intu Broadmarsh is owned two-thirds by intu and one third by Nottingham City Council, which owns the freehold of the land.
