BDP to transform Merrion Centre in Leeds

BDP has been appointed to undertake a multi-million pound refurbishment at the Merrion Shopping Centre in Leeds. The scheme known as ‘New Front’ has been given the go ahead by Leeds City Council.

The scheme for property investment and development company, Town Centre Securities, who developed, own and manage the Merrion Centre, will redevelop 7,500 sq m of existing retail space into a lively leisure destination with bars, cafes, restaurants, and a gym. It will include the creation of an outdoor area designed to promote continental-style café culture, with increased retail frontages, new trees and high quality external finishes. The 1,000 space multi-storey car park, which sits above the leisure and retail units will also be completely refurbished and upgraded.

Ian Purser, architect director at BDP said: “This scheme will create a new destination in an area of regeneration, effectively opening up a ‘new front’ to the Merrion Centre while utilising the existing structure and incorporating contemporary food and beverage facilities”.

BDP is appointed as architect, sustainability engineer, lighting designer and landscape architect for the scheme which will commence early in 2012 and be completed in 2013, to coincide with the opening of the 13,500 capacity Leeds Arena, based opposite the centre.
