McLaren Construction has won a £57m contract for Cathedral Group’s mixed-use regeneration scheme, Bromley South Central.
The project, which has a gross development value of £90m, is currently on site, with demolition of an existing multi-storey car park to be replaced by the new scheme.
It is located around a landscaped public square, and includes a 130 bedroom hotel, which is pre-let to Premier Inn.
It also includes 200 private and affordable apartments, as well as 25,000 sq ft of café and restaurant space at ground level.
It is expected that 220 jobs will be created through the project, which will inject at least £220m into the local economy over the next decade.
An underground level will include a 400-space car park and a nine-screen multiplex, to be operated by Vue Cinema.
The work will also include infrastructure improvement and associated public realm works.
Part of the restaurant space has been pre-let to Nandos, Prezzo and Las Iguanas.
McLaren Construction managing director Phil Pringle said: “This is a significant first project with Cathedral Group, and we are proud to be working on this regeneration scheme that will transform Bromley town centre.
“We look forward to working with Cathedral on Bromley South Central and establishing a long and successful relationship.”
Cathedral Group chief executive Richard Upton said: “This scheme will be transformational for Bromley town centre, creating a real step-change in its fortunes for the people and businesses of Bromley.
“We are delighted to be working on our first project with Mclaren and look forward to building out the scheme together.”
The project is due for completion in autumn 2015.
