£15m Parc Tawe regeneration gets underway
Hammerson has started work on its £15 m redevelopment of Parc Tawe retail and leisure park in Swansea, Wales after plans approved by Swansea Council. The refurbishment will completely transform the park, providing over 200,000 sq ft of contemporary new shops and restaurants that will sit alongside the retained Odeon cinema, Tenpin bowling alley and Plantasia.
Hammerson is set to welcome Mothercare into a new unit while Toys ‘R’ Us will trade from an upgraded store. Costa Coffee will also be occupying a sustainable ‘zero energy’ pod which will be a drive thru coffee shop.
The modernised scheme will provide space for five additional new retail brands, potentially including a foodstore, and four new restaurants. In addition there will be new open public areas, with seating and living green walls, creating an attractive and enjoyable environment for visitors to shop and dine.
Andrew Berger North, UK director of retail parks at Hammerson, said: “Our plans to create a leading, contemporary and attractive retail destination at Parc Tawe are long overdue which is why we have continued to worked closely with Swansea Council to ensure that the very best scheme has been brought forward. We now look forward to delivering the redevelopment project to ensure that the park plays a key role in the continued regeneration of Swansea.”
