Detailed design of Drake Circus Leisure is in full swing with construction expected to start on site in September this year. Macgregor Smith have been appointed by British Land to develop detailed proposals for the streets, terraces and public spaces associated with the development which will include a 12-screen cinema and 13 restaurant units. The design of the Public Realm seeks to reconnect the city centre with Plymouth’s famous harbourside whilst also responding sensitively to the rich, historic character of the adjacent Conservation Area. Working in collaboration with selected artists, the scheme employs a combination of distinctive materials, integrated artwork and feature lighting to provide a high quality setting to a busy city centre leisure quarter. The scheme is expected to open in spring 2018.
