Broxtowe Borough Council has appointed Bowmer + Kirkland as the contractor for the cinema and retail elements of second phase of its Beeston Square development.
The mixed-use development forms the second part of the regeneration of the area and will include an eight-screen cinema, 132 new homes and a range of food and drink outlets.
Councillor Milan Radulovic, leader of the council for Broxtowe Borough Council said: “We’re delighted to announce Bowmer + Kirkland as the contractor for the next phase of the scheme. There is a great deal of momentum behind the development, which will revitalise Beeston’s night-time economy and drive increased footfall to the town from the local and surrounding communities.
“With the announcement of The Arc as the cinema tenants earlier this year and positive ongoing talks with food and beverage outlets, it’s a really exciting time for the town of Beeston and the wider Broxtowe area.”
Bowmer + Kirkland regional director, Gary Bradley, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working closely with Broxtowe Borough Council to continue the transformation of Beeston.
“This next phase of the Beeston Square development will bring new and exciting entertainment opportunities for the town and will boost the local economy.”
Councillor Steve Carr, deputy leader of Broxtowe Borough Council added: “This is a key landmark in what is an important project for both the town and the borough. Bowmer + Kirkland has an excellent reputation for delivering high-quality work, and we are looking forward to seeing work on site getting started in the very near future.”
The scheme has been designed by Leonard Design Architects and is being project managed by Faithful+Gould, and is set to be completed by the end of 2020.
