Restaurant and leisure scheme
Herten Triangle Development increases the leisure mix
Doncaster Council is developing Herten Triangle, an £8 million Doncaster restaurant and leisure scheme immediately adjacent to the existing VUE cinema at Lakeside, Doncaster.
The development will consist of a five restaurant parade and three drive-through units. Seven companies have all agreed lets on the units ranging from 1,800 to 3,650sq ft. and include Burger King, Costa, Creams, Dunkin' Donuts, Estabulo, Taco Bell and TGI Fridays.
The site will be an additional restaurant and leisure destination in the Lakeside area, which already has facilities including a multi-screen cinema and a bowling alley as well as the Doncaster Dome leisure centre. The cinema has recently been extended to 11 screens as part of a £5m refurbishment programme and the Lakeside Triangle development will serve the cinema and the adjacent Doncaster Dome water park, ice rink and concert venue.
The successful Lakeside Village Outlet Shopping is also less than 1 mile away, further increasing the leisure spend in the area.
Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “I'm delighted that our bold decision to develop out this scheme, which will create about 200 jobs and see the council generate additional business rates income, has paid off. This important parcel of council-owned land at Lakeside will now be transformed into another first class leisure offering, complementing the wide array of attractions already located in the vicinity. The level of interest in the development shows the confidence the private sector has in Doncaster as a business destination.”
The scheme is expected to bring around 200 jobs and construction work has now started with the operators expected to be in place Easter 2019.
