As the Bentall centre in Kingston, south-west London, turns 25, landlords Aviva Investors and Gingko Tree Investments have unveiled plans for a refurbishment and leisure extension including a four-screen boutique cinema, new restaurants, new flagship stores, enhancement of the customer entrances, new customer service facilities, improvements to mall areas and a children’s activity area.
A four-screen boutique cinema is proposed at the Clarence Street end of the Bentall Centre. It will be accessed via a foyer on the second floor. Four new restaurants at first floor level will provide a high-quality family orientated dining hub which, together with the cinema, will create a new leisure offer.
A new and inviting entrance scheme is proposed at the centre’s Fife Road entrance, incorporating some of the design and lighting features already used on Clarence Street. The installation of retail and food & beverage kiosks will bring activity to mall areas which will also see a new and improved lighting, improved circulation space, a new children’s activity area and a new customer services desk.xxx
