There have long plans to redevelop the shopping area north of Norwich city centre.
Yesterday, the manager of Anglia Square shopping centre said its future was bright, but that people should not expect an immediate redevelopment at the complex.
The shopping centre was bought by international investment managers Threadneedle Investments for £7,5m a little over a year ago – a dramatic drop on the £36m price tag it had commanded less than a decade before.
Prior to the sale, plans had been approved by Norwich City Council for a major revamp at the complex. Those plans were for 174 new homes, a public square, new shops, restaurants, cafes and a healthcare centre, while Gildengate House, the office block over the entrance to the car park, would have been updated to provide modern offices.
The plans also included a 7,792 square metre foodstore, which Tesco in talks over becoming the new look square's flagship shop.
