Hammerson embarks on next stage of Grand Central transformation

Hammerson has embarked on the next stage of the transformation of Grand Central’s New Street Mall in Birmingham.

The works form the second phase of a £2 million investment to upgrade the key link to New Street and Stephenson Place.

Improvements will include a new double-height atrium to complement an innovative lighting installation in the ceiling that was installed in the first phase. The initial works also included the addition of new seating to provide a more relaxed atmosphere and pilaster treatments to revitalise the shopping centre’s  store fronts. The new atrium will be completed this spring. 

Jon Wynne, senior asset manager at Hammerson, said: “Across our portfolio we’re always looking for ways to make our destinations even more vibrant and engaging. New Street Mall forms a crucial entrance to Grand Central and Birmingham New Street station, and our investment will enable us to deliver an even better experience for consumers.” 

In addition to the investment programme by Hammerson, Holy Moly has completed a £300,000 redesign of its Harlem-inspired Grand Central restaurant.

Grand Central has added several new brands to its line-up in recent months. These include children’s fashion retailer Base, US fried chicken brand Slim Chickens, feline friendly eatery Kitty Café and Virgin Holidays.
