Kier has won a £24m deal to build a new leisure development in Dover.

Bond City is pushing ahead with its £53m St James development, which will include a six-screen cinema, hotel, restaurants and shops.

The redevelopment of the St James area will create 156,915 sq ft of prime retail and leisure space. A 16,000 sq ft M&S store will anchor the development, which will also include a six-screen multiplex Cineworld, a 108-bed Travelodge hotel and six restaurants.

Preconstruction work is under way, with piling works for the foundation of the cinema and restaurant complex to start later this month. The main build is expected to be completed in autumn 2017.

Kier Construction Southern operations director Paul Abrahams said: “We’re delighted to be working with Bond City, Legal & General Property and Dover District Council to deliver this major project. It’s an important scheme for Dover and the area’s economy, and we will be building on our relationships with the local supply chain to help create valuable employment opportunities through the delivery of this key regeneration scheme.”
