Yate Shopping Centre Riverside Cinema site works to start
Works on clearing the site for the new cinema development at Yate Riverside will start later this month in preparation for building works to start early in the New Year.
Contractors will move onto the site on Monday, 20thOctober to start clearing the vegetation as part of a managed programme.
Mark Hull, Managing Director of Crestbridge, owners of Yate Shopping Centre and the developers behind the new leisure scheme, said: “This moment has been a long time coming so it is nice to finally get things underway. The contractors, ISG Pearce, will be working closely with our ecologists over the next few weeks to clear the site of all vegetation whilst monitoring wildlife on the site.
“We anticipate starting construction of the new buildings early in January with a phased opening starting later in the year and final completion in spring 2016. We are in discussions with a fantastic line-up of operators that will cause real excitement in the town and hope to make further announcements about the names involved in the not too distant future.”
In addition to Cineworld, already named as the cinema operators, Yate Riverside will feature several national quality restaurants, cafes and food outlets and three prominent high street retailers.
Andrew Lowrey, Shopping Centre Manager, said: “Yate Riverside might be the news the public want to hear but the centre of attraction in the town over the next few months will be at the Shopping Centre where Peter Andre will be highlighting our Christmas lights event in November. We are also due to announce more new high profile tenants before the end of the year.”
