Plymouth scheme will transform city centre

Posted on by in News

Structural steelwork for the Drake Circus development in Plymouth city centre is rapidly taking shape and the project is due to complete in autumn 2019.

The new leisure scheme is set to transform the former coach station site and will become a key gateway entrance to Plymouth city centre.

Construction work started in November 2017 and is being carried out by McLaren Construction, with steelwork being fabricated, supplied and erected by BHC.

The development comprises a 12-screen Cineworld cinema, 15 restaurants and bars, including a Sky bar above the cinema to capture stunning views of the city and its coastline, and 420 car park spaces.

The scheme will create a new destination for dining and entertainment in Plymouth for both locals and visitors to enjoy. It will complement British Land’s Drake Circus centre which includes shops from Apple, Superdry, M&S and Primark.

The new cinema will incorporate state-of-the-art audio and visual technology with screens ranging in size from an 80 seat to a giant 450 seat IMAX auditorium.
