Chester’s £8 million ‘dining district’ development commences

Chester’s £8 million ‘dining district’ development commences


Bride Hall has revealed this week, that one of the most significant redevelopments within the city centre has begun.
The former Habitat and Multiyork stores on Pepper Street will be remodeled into a contemporary glass-fronted dining area, housing four national restaurant brands.
Latin-American restaurant Las Iguanas is the latest chain to sign up and will occupy the largest of four restaurants set to open in 2015, along with Chimichanga, Coast to Coast and Restaurant Bar and Grill.
North-West based contractor, Pochin, has begun transforming the empty retail units and the former Grade II listed Methodist chapel into a dining haven, which will include al fresco seating areas and a roof terrace.
The Carlyle Group and Bride Hall, owners of the buildings, are confident the new dining quarter will be a great boost to the city centre economy, initially supporting more than150 new construction jobs.
“Eating out remains the nation’s favourite leisure activity and despite a challenging economy we’re excited to welcome this new dining offering to Chester,” says Bride Hall Director, Roger Gorham.
Roger continues: “There are some really exciting improvements beginning to take shape throughout the City and we’re thrilled to be able to update everyone on the latest Pepper Street dining district.”
“Combined with the commencement of work on the City’s business district, the new Grosvenor park and Paddock Row in Grosvenor Shopping Centre, this project will play an important role in linking all areas of the city to boost retail, business and dining trade.”
“Our vision is for Pepper Street to host and drive even more choice for City diners; offering a real vibrancy and variety for visitors to Chester. Piccolino’s, Black House Grill, The Church and Zizzi already situated across the road and then St. John Street restaurants and The Groves down the hill; we believe our stylish new development, will inject more footfall, personality and life into the area.”   
The Grosvenor Shopping Centre, also announced last week that retail giants TX Maxx and Sports Direct will form a large development in Paddock Row, opposite the new restaurants in Pepper Street.
With one of the key city centre bus stops being situated in Pepper Street, it is expected that footfall will increase with the introduction of the new retailers and restaurants, benefiting not just the existing stores in the shopping centre, but also those throughout the city centre.
