The Moor Market is about to end Phase Two of its five-year redevelopment project costing £17m.
Phase Two of the project, which refers to the retail and leisure side of The Moor, brings a brand new Primark store as well as seven restaurants, including Gourmet Burger Kitchen, and a nine-screen cinema called The Light, which is only located in five other cities.
This redevelopment will be situated just below Debenhams at the top of The Moor.
This phase is to be completed by the start of 2017 with the opening of the new Primark store tomorrow and the opening of the restaurants and the cinema in January 2017.
There will also be three kiosks that will be made from stainless steel and glass that are to be occupied by Café Nero and two independent Sheffield food retailers yet to be announced.
Phase Three will focus on the buildings opposite Debenhams and facing onto Furnival Gate. There are plans to progress the redevelopment of The Moor by making way for more retailers. This includes one major, and two minor retail units whose occupiers are yet to be announced.
The Moor has already seen significant development since the beginning of the renovation project in 2013.
Phase One included a new modern look for The Moor Markets and its relocation – along with several new shop units which are now home to TJ Hughes, Poundland, The Entertainer, Iceland, Peacocks and a new gym.
The multi-storey car park on Eyre Street, known locally as the Kit-Kat due to is design, was also constructed during Phase One of the project.
The developments of the site aim to attract new visitors to increase footfall at the markets. The number of visitors to The Moor increased by 2,000 visitors over summer.
