£270m leisure village to go ahead in Swindon

£270m leisure village to go ahead in Swindon

Full planning consent has been approved for a £270m regional leisure destination in Swindon. Phase 1 of the North Star Village, by SevenCapital, received the go ahead less than 17 months after the UK developer took the reins on the project.

Designed by FaulknerBrowns Architects, the North Star Village complex will feature circa 500,000sq ft of retail, dining and leisure, including one of the UK’s largest ski and snow centres, with two real snow indoor ski slopes. It will also house a 13-screen cinema, including Europe’s largest IMAX screen, along with a 19-lane bowling alley and circa 27,000sq ft of trampolining.

The development is expected to attract an annual footfall of 3.3 million people, with a projected catchment area of 10 million people reaching into Wales, the South East and South West of the country.

SevenCapital has already cemented an agreement with a major funder and secured 50 per cent pre-lets ahead of planning consent. Confirmed operators for the North Star Village include The Snow Centre, Empire Cinemas and Hollywood Bowl.

With funding in place, SevenCapital hopes to be on site in May 2019 and expects the build to take a little under two years.
