Waterside Vision

We've had a makeover!

Back in April 2013, we had an amazing vision for how Waterside Shopping should look - so we gave it a £9 million transformation!

Our project has included New Look receiving a refreshing 'new look' and extension, the food offer relocating from the upper level to its new home by the riverside and a said a fond farewell to our old arena in order to make space for our newest additions, H&M and Next!

Although our redevelopment is coming to an end, there is still plenty more to look forward to as even more retailers make their way to Waterside Shopping in the future!
