Work started earlier on this year on the £20 million, 60,000 sq ft intu Potteries leisure development which will include a 9 screen cinema and several family restaurants.
There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes. So far the hoarding has been erected, a new car park entrance has opened and innovative new car park equipment has been installed including large information Totem signs at each entrance, new entrance & exit barriers and pay stations. The excavation of the basement is now taking place along with the demolition of sections of the car park to make way for the building of five new restaurants.
In the next few weeks some exciting visuals of what’s to come will be installed on the hoardings surrounding the development site. Some multi level viewing holes will be added for the members of the public to see what is going on.
Cineworld, Frankie & Benny’s, Chiquito and Gourmet Burger Kitchen have already been announced as some of the new restaurants for the leisure development. Some more exciting new names will be announced soon.
Around 100 jobs will be created during construction and a further 185 jobs once the development open in 2015.
Paul Francis, General Manager at intu Potteries said “Things are really starting to take shape. The changes we are seeing every day are extremely encouraging for shoppers who are increasingly excited about the development”.
