Plans have been submitted for the first phase of a revamp of the Victoria Centre in the Nottingham. The full £35 million refurbishment project includes structural changes to open up the mall, as well as enhanced shop fronts, new ceilings, concrete flooring, lighting and upgraded customer toilet facilities.
Intu, the shopping centre’s owner has applied for planning permission to alter the appearance of the Lower Parliament Street entrance which includes plans for cladding to the existing concrete façade. The plan is the first part of a proposed £35 million redesign planned at the Victoria Centre.
The owners have said they are in discussions with many retailers who are interested in joining intu Victoria Centre and the proposed upgrade and enhancement of the centre will be essential in creating an attractive environment for new retailers to join and for existing tenants to trade strongly in.
It is hoped the revamp will be a boost for the construction industry locally as numerous trades will be required such as joiners, concrete flooring contractors and plumbers. Further re-modelling is proposed around the clocktower, with the creation of a catering cluster. A planning application for this is being worked up for submission later this summer and subject to planning being granted works will start on site during January 2014.
