Meadowhall development enters second phase
£60m refurbishment is driving new signings and upsizes at Sheffield’s shopping centre.

British Land, joint owner of Meadowhall in Yorkshire, has announced six new signings and upsizes totalling over 85,000 sq ft as the £60 million refurbishment moves into its next phase.
 
Primark is to extend its existing unit by 21,000 sq ft, creating a 95,500 sq ft flagship store.  The increase in size is being facilitated by a move into the former BHS unit.
 
Sports Direct has leased the remainder of the former BHS unit, increasing its presence to 44,000 sq ft.  Work is already underway to create the larger stores for both brands, with the new regional flagships due to launch this autumn.
 
Value homewares and household goods retailer Wilko will move into the 14,500 sq ft former Sports Direct store in early 2018. Following the success of the Schuh store, a new 2,850 sq ft Schuh Kids specialist store will be opening next door on Meadowhall’s High Street.  Launching in April, the store will take the brand’s total presence to almost 9,000 sq ft.
 
Meanwhile, outdoor clothing retailer Timberland is launching a new look 1,950 sq ft store on Meadowhall’s High Street in April.
 
These signings coincide with the next stage of Meadowhall’s refurbishment following the completion of The Arcade, with work now shifting to Meadowhall’s Gallery, High Street and Park Lane, where each mall will be given a different look and feel.  The £60m refurbishment completes at the end of the year and is the most significant investment in the centre since it opened.
