FACTS

The scheme proposes a modern fully covered city centre development with shops, cafes, restaurants and multi storey car park with spaces for 1,270 cars.

The existing centre was designed in the 1970's around a supermarket and six-storey office building.

Drake Circus will provide up to 1,000 jobs during the construction phase and up to 2,000 full and part time positions when complete.

The work should be complete in 2006.
