Bow Street Mall Extension Boosted

The developers behind a proposed multi-million pound, 389,000 sq ft extension to a Co Antrim shopping centre have submitted further information in support of their application.

According to a newspaper report, the additional information is thought to include the provision of two options for the Bow Street Mall development - one that includes the development of the Antrim Street car park and one that excludes the car park, with the expectation that it could be developed at a later date.

The Ulster Star has reported that option one provides a 22,472sqm department store, five additional retail units totalling 3,966sqm and nine apartments with Antrim Street Car Park retained in its current form.

Option two provides a department store of the same size, eight additional retail units totalling 9,030sqm, seventeen apartments and a multi-storey car park with Antrim Street car park developed.

It is understood the provision of these two options could potentially speed up the planning process, meaning work can begin on site as soon as an anchor tenant is secured.
