The new development will cover more than 111,000m², providing new homes, retail premises, leisure amenities, public artwork and new public realm.
One of the biggest urban renewal projects outside of Greater London, the redeveloped Anglia Square will deliver a series of striking buildings designed around two “Covent Garden style” landscaped plazas.
The proposals for Anglia Square will give Norwich a new northern city centre destination for shopping, leisure and entertainment, with high quality retail floorspace allowing for 40 glass-fronted retail units, including an anchor food store.
Alongside this there will be a new 200 bed hotel with a range of facilities including a roof level bar and restaurant, offering panoramic views over the city centre, and a new leisure quarter, centred on a new ground floor multi-screen cinema.
Bob Weston, Chairman & Chief Executive of Weston Homes, said: “Anglia Square is a major urban renewal project which will position Norwich for the future and provide a new mixed-use destination for the city.”
