Corstorphine + Wright is working on this transformational £18.5 million project for owner Legal & General and Cambridge based development partner Wrenbridge.
The two phase scheme will revitalise the tired 1980s shopping centre, enhancing and expanding the existing retail and leisure offer.
The Fitzroy Street entrance has been refashioned with a new double height glazed entrance that creates a sense of arrival. New, contemporary shop fronts have been fitted, including double height frontages for the larger stores, whilst the roof has been replaced by a glazed ceiling with feature lighting to create a bright, spacious environment flooded with natural daylight for families, locals and students to enjoy. The centre has also gained a new brand identity.
Eden Hall, an area which previously housed small shops, will be reconfigured to attract new leisure and retail operators, whilst the Central Hall will gain a new skylight and will be de-cluttered to create open spaces and offer a new dining and seating area.
Phase two will include the refurbishment of the Great Court and the creation of a new restaurant quarter.
