Cineworld is to anchor the new leisure-based development at Link Road, Yate – to be called Yate Riverside. Other leisure and retail operators are close to signing deals and these will be announced in the near future as and when leases are completed.
The new development will include a six-screen multiplex cinema, seven restaurants/cafes and three retail units specifically aimed at national high street chains.
Mark Hull, Group Property Controller at Crestbridge, owners of Yate Shopping Centre, said that Yate Riverside would attract more national operators to the town and transform the town’s night-time economy to firmly put Yate onto the map.
