Queensgate begins £8 million refurbishment

Lendlease and Invesco Real Estate have commenced work on an £8 million refurbishment of the Queensgate shopping centre in Peterborough.

Designed by multi-award winning architects Benoy, the changes will include new lighting, doors, cladding, ceilings and internal finishes as the owners look to create a more bright and contemporary look.

Seating areas complementing the design and structure of the centre will be upgraded throughout the scheme and, subject to planning approval, the Cumbergate entrance will be transformed to create an improved welcome hall.

Sustainability is being considered throughout the works and environmentally friendly features will include LED lighting and sustainably sourced and low maintenance materials, including recycled aluminium and timber from FSC credited sources.

Due to be completed in November 2017, all works will be carried out overnight when the centre is closed.

Guy Thomas, head of retail asset management at Lendlease, said: “We are excited to commence the refurbishment works at Queensgate. With the customer, sustainability and high quality design at its heart, the works will further boost Queensgate’s green credentials, whilst creating a welcoming and engaging retail offering. With strong demand from leading brands, the new and improved façade of the malls will reflect Queensgate’s dominance in the East of England.”

Since Invesco bought Queensgate and Lendlease took over the asset management 18 months ago, 16 new brands totalling over 55,000 square feet of space have been added to Queensgate including MAC Cosmetics and Hotel Chocolat. In addition, Westgate Arcade has been refurbished and significant investment has been made in improving Queensgate’s car parks.
