Refurbishment of Surrey Quays planned

The owners of the Surrey Quays shopping centre have released initial plans for a major expansion and refurbishment of the 23 year old building.

With both Westfield Stratford and Canary Wharf shopping district only a few stops away on the Jubilee Line, something drastic needs to be done if its decline is going to be arrested. With the wider regeneration of Canada Water now at an advanced stage, the opportunity is to create a local leisure destination, with an additional 15-20 shops and restaurants and improved landscaping. The landlords hope to complete the new centre by 2014.
