Bradford THEXCHANGE Cinema/Restaurants & Mixed Retail/Residential Development.

Proposals and work progression.







Cinema/Restaurant info:

The Light to anchor Meyer Bergman’s leisure development

Meyer Bergman, owner of The Broadway Bradford, has struck a deal with luxury cinema operator The Light to join the scheme. A new cinema and restaurant extension has been confirmed at the Yorkshire scheme which is managed by Westfield – and is to include a six-screen, 780-seat cinema and four restaurants, totalling 35,000 sq. Construction is scheduled to start in Spring 2016.

THEXCHANGE Residential Development:

Is a mixed retail and residential development. The upper floors of this iconic building, having been occupied for some 45 years as offices and constructed originally to a very high standard, are now available for sale on a long leasehold basis. Up to 98 residential units can be planned for a permitted development on these upper floors, which provide approximately 8,000 sq.ft. per floor (net) and are serviced from a separate quality ground floor entrance and three lifts.
The property has excellent floor to ceiling heights and the framed nature of the accommodation means that it is totally flexible in terms of layouts.

There's been rumours on Twitter that Prezzo & TGI's have signed up to go below the cinema.
Still amazed Pizza Express hasn't got a site in Bradford especially when they've got one in a smaller towns like Halifax & Skipton.

Under The Light apparently. Someone on Twitter who owns a bar/restaurant called Popadoms said he's opening in Bradford and that Prezzo & TGIs will be there soon too. I guess he's been privy to information about the sign ups to sell the location to him to set up his business here.

Also there are a few examples of centre locations such as TGIs in Halifax. Also there's a Prezo in Blackpool centre and if that hell hole can have one I bloody hope Bradford can too.

oh well thats pretty good to hear. i huess i always take these twitter things with a pinch of salt though as if he was really that invested in it and opening up like he says he is, i wonder if he would be so vocal about it? these things are really commercilly sensistive arent they?
i think a diner thing like tgis would do really well though, as theres nothing like it in the centre.

Popadoms looks quite good too if they are actually opening in Bradford. Check their website: http://papadoms.co.uk/

Yeah I'd love a TGIs in Bradford. Hate having to go to Birstall if you just want a standard chain meal.

On a press release announcing the cinema they did say that two of the units under the cinema were under offer so it would tie in really.

Pics from earlier in the week.


Front of the Thexchange building.



Rear of the Thexchange building, behind Bonmarche & Bright House.



Right hand side of the Thexchange building, opposite Zizz's and Patisserie Valerie.



The Cinema & Restaurant complex, situated at the rear of the Thexchange block on the Broadway side. Once HMV move into the Broadway Centre on the 2nd of May, work can commence on this building.

What a difference that has made.

The only way to save Darley Street is to do somethings similar with proper investment into the units. Who wants to shop in grotty smelly shops when there are bright clean modern shops just down the road.

Why would you travel from Bradford to Birstall for a ready meal? It's convenience eating.

Because I like the ribs and burgers from there and there isn't one in Bradford.

I also live in South Bradford so it's 5/10 minutes to Birstall. I'd prefer to go into Bradford but the lack of restaurants prevents this.

Prezzo is my favourite of the chain Italian restaurants, so I'd love to see it come to Bradford. Even Ripon and Beverley have a Prezzo, so surely we should too!!! And it's more realistically priced than Zizzi (which I visited a few weeks ago in the Broadway - lovely and a bit different in menu to most of the local Italian restaurants, but quite expensive).

Also, some while ago there was talk of Wagamama coming to the XChange / Broadway. Has that died the death?

Every time I've been I've thought prezzo is a lot more than zizzis. Decent though.

Totally agree, it has breathed new life into that part of Market Street. I look forward to seeing (and tasting!!!) the Five Guys restaurant. And I still hope to see my beloved Prezzo make an appearance!
