British Land has submitted a planning application for a £300m extension to its Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield.
The developer owns Meadowhall as part of a joint venture with Norway’s central bank Norges and will extend the shopping centre by 300,000 sq ft.
Dining facilities, a gym and an open-air terrace will be created.
A cinema with a solar-panelled roof will also be built to provide 10 per cent of the Meadowhall extension’s energy.
The extension is part of a five-year plan to extend the leisure facilities offered at the centre.
A planning decision is expected to be made in spring 2017 by Sheffield City Council.
A £60m refurbishment of Meadowhall is currently being carried out by Laing O’Rourke, according to construction intelligence provider Glenigan.
Alongside the refurbishment, £24m has been invested over the past two years on store designs and refurbishments by existing brands at Meadowhall.

British Land will also be completing the final stages of its Broadgate Campus redevelopment after selecting Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver the works in March.
The contractor will be delivering the 515,000 sq ft Liverpool Street office and retail building and the 300,000 sq ft 1 Finsbury Avenue office building.
In total, the Broadgate Campus includes 4.7m sq ft of commercial space, including Broadgate Tower, Broadgate Circle and 2 & 3 Finsbury Avenue.
