Restaurants, bars and leisure brands sign for leisure extension.
Four food and beverage brands and one leisure operator have committed to a combined 32,000 sq ft of space at Drake Circus Leisure, the new leisure and entertainment development in Plymouth city centre which will open in the Autumn.
Located adjacent to British Land’s Drake Circus, the scheme will complement the shopping centre, creating another vibrant destination for Plymouth. The leisure complex will be anchored by a 41,000-sq ft, 12-screen Cineworld cinema, together with a state-of-the-art IMAX screen, the first to open in the south west.
New restaurants and bars arriving at the centre include Five Guys, the burger joint which will open a 2,500 sq ft restaurant; Nando’s, which has committed to a 4,300-sq ft restaurant; upmarket café-bar chain, Cosy Club, which will take 6,700 sq ft and Italian eatery, Zizzi which has committed to 4,000 sq ft of space. Paradise Island Adventure Golf will open a 15,000-sq ft indoor adventure golf centre, its first in the south west of England. These lettings bring the total space let to 68%.
Ben Grose, British Land’s head of national leasing, said: “The commitment of five prominent brands is a reflection both of the strength of Drake Circus’ appeal as a shopping and leisure destination and the success of our long-term asset management plan.”
Smith Young and Cushman & Wakefield advised British Land on the lettings.
