Work has commenced on the £90million Bromley South Central development that will see a new cinema, hotel and big chain restaurants introduced to the area by 2015.

Bromley Council gathered on Wednesday of last week to celebrate the start of construction on the site, in Westmoreland Road, that is expected to inject £220million into the local economy and provide 220 jobs.

The council will work on the project with property developers Cathedral Group PLC, who recently announced property fund managers Hermes Real Estate Investment Management Limited (HREIML) will invest £54.9million into the development.

Cllr Stephen Carr, council leader, said: “Bromley is a key location in the south-east and is independently recognised as one of the leading places in the country to live.

“We are actively pursuing exciting proposals for other sites within the town centre which include a hotel and a significant mixed use development in the middle of the town centre as well as a forthcoming £5million investment in public realm improvements in Bromley North. We are also in discussions with the Mayor of London and TfL about bringing DLR to Bromley, further enhancing the appeal.”

Bromley South Central will include a 130 bedroom Premier Inn hotel, a nine screen Vue cinema and restaurants including Nandos, Prezzo and Las Iguanas.

There will also be 200 new apartments, as well as a 400 space underground car park.
