Sheffield Telegraph: "Hammerson's Sevenstone: Aren't shopping centres out of date?"

Link to Sheffield Telegraph

"Aren’t shopping centres past their sell-by date?"
'It wouldn’t be a single covered shopping complex, similar to those that were fashionable in the Seventies, but a series of buildings with precincts and landscaping in between. The development agreement says the public spaces have to be of a similar standard to the Peace Gardens, Barkers Pool and Sheaf Square in front of the railway station.'
"How can the council afford £10m [to help the scheme] during such tough times?"
'It believes the retail quarter is so crucial to the future of the city centre that it cannot be allowed to fail. It has also secured a deal that will see the money repaid once construction starts.'
