Silverburn opens £20m extension
The Silverburn shopping cemtre in Glasgow has opened its new £20 million leisure extension.
The 100,000 square foot development is anchored by a 14-screen Cineworld and features 11 new restaurants, including Carluccio’s, Chimichanga, Cosmo, Zizzi, Pret, TGI Friday’s and Five Guys.
Completion of the extension marks the most significant investment project undertaken by Hammerson and CPPIB since they acquired Silverburn in 2009. The extension is expected to attract over one million extra visitors.
In addition to the new brands in the extended Wintergarden, existing restaurants, such as Pizza Hut and Nando’s, have strengthened their presence at Silverburn, launching new concepts to coincide with the opening. As part of the £20 million investment, over 350 permanent retail and leisure jobs have been created.
Guy Wells, development manager at Hammerson, said: “Creating leading destinations goes beyond pure retail.
“By delivering more for Silverburn’s visitors, the centre is now set to play an even greater role in the local community and beyond, which is not only important in helping to drive dwell time, catering and retail sales, but it is also vital in future-proofing the continued success of Silverburn.”
