The Riverwalk Shopping Centre, currently being built in the centre of Durham, will include a food hall to showcase the North East’s best street food, it has been announced.
The hall will be next to the Odeon Cinema, another highly anticipated part of the £30 million development.
Clearbell Property Partners, the group behind the proposal and managed by Clearbell Capital, are currently looking for the best local food and drink companies to collect under the same roof.
Nick Berry, from Clearbell Capital, said: “The street food scene in the North East is really exciting, and we want to capture some of that spirit in The Riverwalk.
“Our new food hall concept will create a platform to bring unique food operators right to the heart of The Riverwalk, and with the cinema, bowling lanes and a great range of new restaurant brands, we’re establishing a real point of difference for Durham.”
