Major Investment Plans Confirmed For Tower Centre In Ballymena

NI property developer Sam Morrison has today confirmed plans for a £10m capital expenditure project to reconfigure and improve the Tower Centre in Ballymena.

Mr Morrison, who purchased the shopping centre in September, has committed to returning the centre to its former glory by investing in the layout and shopping experience. He also plans to attract a selection of new retailers and build on the current offering of high street names and independent retailers.

Tower Centre, which was the first shopping centre to open in Ballymena back in 1981, currently hosts over 30 retailers including Primark, Boots, B&M and Dunnes.

Mr Morrison said: "We are looking forward to the challenge of returning the centre back to its best following our acquisition earlier this year. We have allocated a further £10m of capital expenditure to support the reconfiguration of the shopping centre and we are targeting a raft of new retailers to take shops in the centre.

“It's our intention that a new and improved Tower Centre will add to Ballymena's reputation as a vibrant shopping destination with impressive centres, retail and leisure parks which include a mix of independent and multinational retailers.”

Lambert Smith Hampton has been appointed as managing agent for the centre.
