Blackstone and Sovereign Centros secure planning for new leisure scheme at St Enoch, Glasgow

Sovereign Centros, as operating partner for the centre’s owner, Blackstone, has secured planning consent from Glasgow City Council for a new 90,000-sq ft leisure redevelopment at St Enoch shopping centre in Glasgow city centre.

The scheme will comprise a new 30,000-sq ft, nine-screen cinema, up to nine new restaurants and an additional 35,000 sq ft of new retail and leisure floorspace.

The redevelopment will be located at the east end of St Enoch shopping centre in the former BHS store, which closed earlier this year.

Sovereign Centros director Paul Bailey said: “The provision of a complete leisure destination, all under one roof with adjacent car parking, will be unique for Glasgow City Centre and will further boost St Enoch’s rapidly enhancing reputation. We are very well advanced in discussions with an international cinema brand as well as numerous household restaurants.”

CBRE advised on planning and letting agents are Cushman & Wakefield and Eric Young & Co.
