A new fly through video shows how Nottingham’s Broadmarsh shopping centre could look after its £89 million redevelopment is complete.
Owners Intu have had a planning application for the centre approved by Nottingham City Council, but are yet to start work.
The council started knocking down the car park and bus station next door on Monday, as part of an overall transformation of the south side of Nottingham city centre.
Intu’s video shows an open and light design, revealing a glass roof and exposed brickwork.
A new food court design and entrance to a planned cinema is also included.
It is expected to be opened in 2020 – two years later than was originally planned by Intu, although the council is expected to finish the demolition and re-build of the car park and bus station sooner.
Speaking on Monday, Council Leader Jon Collins said: “It is two or three years of construction work around this area, it does mean there will be some traffic and congestion and disruption and I know people will find that a bit difficult.
“But ultimately if we are going to bring about the kind of change we want in this part of town then it is something we are going to have to live with and hope that at the end of it it’s a price worth paying.
“It’s [the car park] clearly one of the ugliest buildings in Nottingham – hopefully people will be as happy as I am to see it go.”
