Leslie Jones Architecture is designing an attractive new dining and leisure destination for intu Bromley as part of a £24 million investment.
- Client: Intu Properties PLC
- Dynamic design to create a new sense of place
- Complex planning environment
- Scheme successfully attracting new tenants
As with many retail destinations, intu Bromley needed to diversify its offer to remain a relevant retail destination for the London borough. A new dining quarter was therefore conceived in order to appeal to modern consumer needs.
The Queens Garden area was chosen for the 10,000 sq ft development due to its attractive outlook. The area will be revitalised with new restaurant units, transforming the Queens Gardens into a complimentary day and evening destination aimed at the centre’s affluent catchment.
Leslie Jones Architecture has applied its expert design skills and technical knowledge to work closely with all stakeholders and as part of the project team, throughout a complex planning process. The views of all stakeholders have helped inform the design by Leslie Jones, providing restaurant space within sympathetic pavilion architecture.
Planning approval has also been gained by Leslie Jones for a new cinema extension at the centre. The scheme designed at roof level incorporates new restaurants and dinning offers, vertical circulation and a stunning new atrium interior as a focal point. New tenants have already been attracted by Leslie Jones’ innovative designs and the centre’s vibrant new offering, including Carluccio’s, which has opened its restaurant and foodstore concept at the centre.
