New images showcase work on McArthurGlen Designer Outlet
New pictures have shown the latest work on a multi-million pound designer outlet village.
Work on the £160 million McArthurGlen Designer Outlet West Midlands in Cannock is under way with the structures now taking shape.
Roofs have been installed on top of the several brick structures, with a metal skeleton surrounding them as workers put on the finishing touches.
Work to clear out the Mill Green site to make way for the development started in July and is expected to finish next year.
It will bring a total of 1,000 jobs to the area – along with 80 sought-after premium and luxury brands, restaurants and cafes, a children's play area, bike parking for cyclists and 1,400 car parking spaces in phase one.
It comes after McArthurGlen announced a joint venture with Aviva Investors, The Richardson Family and U+I to develop McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cannock, which will span 285,000 sq ft of retail space across two phases.
The project will also see £1.5 million invested into various projects in the area.
This investment will help towards the ongoing maintenance of the Mill Green Nature Park, improvements to Cannock Town Centre and the railway station, and support for developing skills and employment prospects for local people.
The development will mark the group's 26th centre and their seventh in the UK.
It has also seen 350 metres of the A5190 Lichfield Road, a main stretch into Cannock, closed off for roadworks.
The works has meant drivers will be faced with a two-mile diversion until they are completed on September 2.
