Work set to start on next phase of Waterdale shopping centre

St Modwen is set to start work on the redevelopment of Young Street car park in Doncaster, delivering new and improved retail and leisure facilities to the area, as part of its ongoing investment in the town.

The redevelopment includes plans for a two-storey building, incorporating 11,000 sq ft of ground floor retail space and a further 11,000 sq ft of space on the first floor, planned for a variety of uses, including office, leisure and restaurants. Work is expected to be completed in early 2017. Other improvement works will also take place on existing buildings close to the Young Street car park to improve the retail experience for shoppers and residents.

St Modwen has further invested in Waterdale Shopping Centre through the recent purchase of 31 Cleveland Street, occupied by Sofia Furniture. This acquisition will allow improvements to be made to a key part of the centre in future phases of regeneration.

Development manager Paul Brustad said: “Our plans include improvements to some of the existing buildings in the centre but also work to deliver a more modern and attractive retail and leisure environment to the area, which we are confident will drive greater investment and interest in the town.”
