Salmon Harvester Opportunity Fund has submitted a detailed planning application to Worcester City Council for the redevelopment its 220,000 sq ft Cathedral Plaza shopping centre in the cathedral city.
The multi-million proposals are for the creation of seven new restaurants overlooking a new public square in front of the cathedral and remodelled shop units, a gym and foodstore.
Nick Webb of Salmon Harvester Opportunity Fund said; “Our plans are aimed at attracting good quality restaurant and retail businesses to Worcester and increasing shopper dwell time in the city centre to the benefit of all concerned.”
As well as works to the centre itself, the proposals provide an opportunity to create a new public square where a roundabout between Deansgate and College Street currently sits.
Subject to planning consent, the project would get underway early next year with the new restaurants and shops open for Spring 2016.
Salmon Harvester is being advised by DMR, Hartnell Taylor Cook and Johnson Fellows.
