Land Securities’ White Rose shopping centre in Leeds ended the year on a high with the Topping Out of the 65,000-sq ft leisure extension. A formal ceremony was held, commemorating the final beam laid at the peak of the new IMAX screen.
The extension will introduce six new restaurants, including units which have already been pre-let to Wagamama, TGI Friday’s, Chiquito and Pizza Hut, alongside an 11-screen, state-of-the-art IMAX Cineworld cinema, an event space, and a uniquely designed children’s play area.
Rob Jewell, portfolio director at Land Securities, said: “The Topping Out ceremony marks the team’s achievement since breaking ground in April and is an important step towards practical completion in just over three months’ time. We look forward to opening new restaurants and the cinema next summer, creating a space that fits the needs of those who work and shop at the centre, and bringing future prospects to those that live and shop in the area.”
