13 January 2016: Queensberry Real Estate has been formally instructed by Meyer Bergman to provide development management advice for its Bradford Leisure Quarter development.

The project is the second phase of Meyer Bergman’s development in Bradford, following the recent launch of the Broadway Bradford on which the team at Queensberry Real Estate also provided advice.

Meyer Bergman’s second phase of development will include a six screen cinema and restaurant offer directly adjacent to the Broadway Bradford. Cinema brand ‘The Light’ has already been signed up to operate the new state-of-the-art cinema. The extension, which was granted outline planning consent by Bradford Council in August 2015, also includes four restaurants totalling 35,000 sq ft of additional dining space.

Paul Sargent, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Queensberry said:

This development management instruction is a great opportunity for us to continue our successful working relationship with Meyer Bergman and its partners. Broadway Bradford is one of the most exciting retail and leisure schemes currently under development in the UK and this instruction enables us to be involved in its development along with our other retail schemes, including Friars Walk in Newport, which also opened last year.”

As one of only handful of shopping centres to launch in 2015, the 570,000 Broadway Bradford opened to the public on 5 November. It includes over 70 shops, restaurants, a food court and 1,300 parking spaces. Key retailers include Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, Topshop, H&M and Superdry.
