Meadowhall shopping centre in Yorkshire poised for £50m refurbishment

Yorkshire’s Meadowhall shopping centre will have a £50m facelift as part of its 25th birthday celebrations.

Meadowhall’s owners British Land said the work, which is set to start in the autumn, will create “distinct districts” within the centre, reports Retail Week.

The facelift, which will be completed by the end of 2017, will enable a number of retailers to install double-height shop fronts, British Land said. New mall seating and lighting will also be installed as part of the revamp at the 1.4million sq ft retail and leisure destination.

News of the investment comes after £3m was pumped into refreshing the Park Lane area of Meadowhall, which attracted a number of new retailers to the centre including The White Company, Jigsaw and White Stuff.

British Land confirmed that the majority of the latest works will be completed outside of trading hours so that all of its retail and leisure operators can continue to trade throughout the period.
