New drone shots show Cannock outlet village taking shape
New aerial shots show the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in Cannock rapidly taking shape.
Construction of the £160 million shopping centre started in July 2018 and is due to finish later this year.
The complex is expected to open its doors this autumn, although an official opening date has yet to be announced, and will be called the West Midlands Designer Outlet despite being in Staffordshire.
Around 1,000 jobs are expected to be created at the shopping village, which will feature around 80 brands, restaurants, cafes and 1,400 car parking spaces.
The aerial shots, taken by Paul Turner from Willenhall, show the development progressing quickly on the Mill Green site.
Mike Thomas, centre manager for McArthurGlen’s West Midlands Designer Outlet, said: “Construction work for our new designer outlet in Cannock continues to progress well, with shopfronts and glazing now being installed.
"The mall paving is also well underway and our car parking area is starting to take shape too.
"We are really looking forward to opening this autumn and we will keep the community updated as we get closer to completion.”
The completed outlet will include a square with a coffee kiosk, “dancing fountain” and art, where events will be held throughout the year. There will also be a children’s play area near the square, to back onto the nature reserve.
George Adamson, the leader of Cannock Chase District Council, has labelled the development “the best thing to happen to Cannock in decades”.
