Maloneview plans further refresh of The Square
The developer behind the £70m overhaul of The Square shopping centre in Sale has added to its plans to reinvigorate the centre with an additional application to Trafford Council.
Under Maloneview’s latest plans, vacant retail units in the shopping centre will be converted into food and drink, and leisure uses, while there will be additional improvements to public realm and access into the building.
There would be work to improve the shop fronts and convert the upper floors of retail into 7,000 sq ft of offices.
Maloneview is being advised by Barton Willmore as planner, SimpsonHaugh as architect, and landscape architect Exterior.
The scheme is an expansion of a planning application approved in March last year.
The redevelopment, also designed by SimpsonHaugh, would include a partial demolition of the existing shopping centre, and replacing it with a six-screen cinema, up to 37,000 sq ft of retail and leisure over nine units; three of these will be in the cinema building, and six more will be within a new retail terrace.
The 202 homes will be split across two blocks of 15 and 12 storeys, along with 18 townhouses along the site’s Sibson Road frontage. The 104,000 sq ft car park will include 337 spaces.
This scheme would already see new areas of public space to provide a route between Town Square and Sibson Road, while the cinema will also include public realm.
Maloneview is being advised on retail lettings by Sixteen Real Estate.
