MR BRENT THIS IS THE WAY TO DO A DEVELOPMENT

The 12-screen cinema, massive 4D IMAX and 14 restaurant complex coming to Plymouth

Contracts have been signed which will see a 12-screen cinema, with an 18-metre high IMAX screeb - built in Plymouth.

The 100,000 square foot development could include a 4DX cinema - designed to include motion, fog, wind, rain and smells.

There will be 14 restaurants in the complex including a skybar on the roof.

British Land has exchanged contracts with Cineworld to run the anchor cinema complex as part of the £42 million redevelopment of Bretonside.

 The 12 screen cinema will incorporate state of the art audio and visual technology and have screens ranging in size from a 63 seat to a giant 450-seat IMAX auditoria.

The deal means all the conditions have now been met by the developers which unlocks funds to get started on the new coach station that will replace the dated bus station.

Consultant Jonathan Dean was in Plymouth today give the Council’s cabinet a progress report on behalf of British Land.

And as well as unveiling the latest fly-through and images of the £42 million planned development, he told cabinet that there had been a huge amount of interest in food businesses hoping to become part of the venture.

British Land is working closely with potential businesses and has had strong demand from companies with a number expected to sign contracts before the end of the year.

He said: “Drake Circus Leisure is an exciting scheme and we are delighted to be one step closer to delivering the project. The recent letting to Cineworld and interest from restaurant operators has allowed us to accelerate our plans, and we are excited to be working with the Council to enhance the city centre.”

Cabinet Member for Finance and Assets and City Centre champion Mark Lowry said: “This is a critical milestone in the scheme as it signals the move from the planning stage towards delivery on the ground.

“Now that these conditions have been met, we are in a positon to begin drawing down funds for the new coach station.

“I’m chuffed to bits that so many companies are lining up to be part of this complex and part of Plymouth’s success story. This will add another string to the city centre’s bow and keep more people coming, both during the day and in the evening.”

British Land has now issued the ‘coach station notification’ which means it has formally served notice on the Council, as owners of Bretonside, to vacate the land by Summer 2016, ahead of start of building.

Final discussions are currently underway with the South West Highways, the preferred bidder for the coach station, who will start work on site shortly.

Councillor Lowry added: “An enormous amount of work has gone into getting this development to this stage and it is beginning to get a real sense of momentum.

“Work on the new coach station at Mayflower Street is just around the corner – with the main construction to start in January and a few months later, the public will be able to see work start on the British Land development – these are big changes and a huge deal for the city.

The coach station on Mayflower Street will have seven coach stands that will serve National Express and Megabus. Features include real time passenger information systems, blue badge holder drop-off bay, customer help points, ticket machines, toilets, cycle stands, CCTV and ornamental lighting.

Some of the facts and figures:

• The scheme is going to cover 100,000 sq ft

• The 12 screen cinema complex will cover 42,000 sq ft

• The IMAX screen is 18 metres tall – this auditorium will have 450 seats and will include the latest cinema technologies. This could include a 4DX auditoria – where film viewing is enhanced with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights and scents.

• There is room for 14 restaurants – and one on the roof

• It’s going to be big – its 105 feet from the plaza in Bretonside to the sky bar – that’s 3 ½ double decker buses stood on end.

It looks like its going to be a knockout victory for Bretonside:

The massive redevelopment of Bretonside extending Drake Circus is set to start next summer after the final details were revealed at a meeting of Plymouth City Council’s cabinet yesterday.

Developer British Land has now served notice on the council to vacate Bretonside bus station - the first stage in the physical development of the site.

The latest contracts are also the final piece in the puzzle for a new coach station in Mayflower Street as the deal will see British Land pump £2million into that scheme, with the project expected to be completed in July 2018.

As well as confirming Cineworld has agreed to run a 12-screen cinema with massinve IMAX screen at the site, council bosses last night revealed that several big names are keen on moving into the 14 restaurants that will be built alongside – many of which have never had a Plymouth branch.

Earlier this year planning permission was granted by Plymouth City Council for the £40million, 100,000 sq ft scheme.

The new cinema will incorporate state of the art audio and visual technology, and a giant 450 seat IMAX auditorium.

One of the 4D auditoriums will be enhanced with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights and scents.

Exeter Street will have extensive glazing from floor to ceiling and there will be a kiosk to be occupied by a coffee or snack bar operator.

British Land consultant Jonathan Dean said: “There will be three routes to enhance connectivity between Exeter Street and Bretonside through public spaces.”

The new streets will be open 24 hours a day and overlooked by CCTV.

Councillor Ian Tuffin yesterday said Bretonside has been “sad looking” for some time, and that the redevelopment will make the area far more welcoming for visitors.

“The kind of post-war 1950s architecture that exists there is well beyond its sell by date,” he added.

A rooftop restaurant nicknamed ‘Skybar’ will also be installed and will be occupied by a “major” business.

British Land says it has received huge demand from restaurant operators for the 14 proposed units, many of which currently have no presence in Plymouth.

Drake Circus Leisure will create 350 permanent jobs in addition to a number of temporary construction jobs.

David Pollock, retail development director for British Land, said: “Once complete, Drake Circus Leisure will be the most significant leisure scheme in the South West and we are delighted to be one step closer to delivering the project.

“The recent letting to Cineworld and interest from restaurant operators has allowed us to accelerate our plans, and we are excited to be working with the council to enhance the city centre.”

Plymouth City Council’s cabinet member for finance and assets and city centre champion Mark Lowry added: “The amount of work that goes into making these developments happen is huge.

“I’m chuffed to bits that so many companies are lining up to be part of this complex – this will add another string to the city centre’s bow and keep more people coming both during the day and in the evening.

“There’s a real sense of progress on this scheme which will help transform this part of Plymouth and offer more choice for people looking to spend their time and money on Plymouth’s city centre.”



Some of the facts and figures:

• The scheme is going to cover 100,000 sq ft

• The 12 screen cinema complex will cover 42,000 sq ft

• The IMAX screen is 18 metres tall – this auditorium will have 450 seats and will include the latest cinema technologies. This could include a 4DX auditoria – where film viewing is enhanced with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights and scents.

• There is room for 14 restaurants – and one on the roof

• It’s going to be big – its 105 feet from the plaza in Bretonside to the sky bar – that’s 3 ½ double decker buses stood on end.

3. Gourmet Burger Kitchen

4. Giraffe

5. Byron Burger

6. Ask

7. Wahaca

The only down side to this development is making the two lane from Charles Church to Royal Parade to one lane and doing away with the under pass at Charles Church end and replacing it with traffic light crossing.

Meh, minor detail. My only gripe/concern with this new development, is that it's another kick in the teeth for the lower part of town. It's in a shit state as it is. We need a large quality development of some sort in the Colin Campbell car park area to breath new life into it. I fear the lower part of town is going to get a lot worse before it's gets any better.

Anyway. what a fantastic development this is. Much better than the piss-stained bus station we have now.

Finally the death of the mini stand?

Looks a great development, and bonus points for sending Brent's cronies crying into their tea.

Charles Church end will be clog up even more with these new lights, keep the under pass.


Colin Campbell Court is the gateway to the bottom half of town but it is equally going to be the gateway between Millbay and town, and so we want to get that right,” he said.

“At the moment, there is an impregnable fortress of traffic that is in the way of the two, and we want to reshape that so the traffic flows freely but doesn’t become a barrier to people’s movement.”

Plymouth City Council has commissioned urban layout specialists LDA Design to carry out “detailed feasibility studies” to work out how the West End might reinvent itself.

David Mackay (of Bareclona remodelling for Olympics fame) produced a study in 2003 which all the sunsequent PCC Area Action Plans for City Centre were based on.

Central to this was the Pavillions being flattened to make way for a boulevard to link the new development at Millbay to the west end of city centre, which would in turn be turned into a mixed use area. Tudor and co. in their haste to do a deal with Jimmy ignored that and now created a blocker for the whole area especially as Jimmy can't deliver a letter let alone a redevelopment.

But if the alternative would be to let PCC's in-house highways clowns have a play with the design, then whatever the Council are paying LDA, it'll be money well spent.

The markings don't really matter given that the lights are rarely working. Laughing
The narrowed filter onto the Plain from the fire station, what a joke that is. Another chance for people to hone their road rage.
