A landmark £90 million leisure and housing development in Bromley town centre is in its final stages after taking years to come to fruition.

The ambitious Bromley South Central scheme is delivering a hotel, cinema, restaurants, apartments and a 400-space underground car park at St Mark’s Square.

Pizza Express will open tomorrow, following on from Nandos, and Vue Cinema welcomes movie lovers for the first time today.

The 130-room Premier Inn hotel has already opened.

Emily Annable, a communication manager for the development, said 200 new apartments were going on sale early next year.

She added: "It is in the final stages. Things are now opening. We have various things being introduced in the new year.

"It is a really exciting mixed development for the town centre. It is easily accessible through the train line if people outside the area were looking for something new.

"We will be announcing more restaurants that will open soon and the full launch of the development will be spring next year."

Bromley councillor Peter Morgan said it was a "big step forward" for the town.

He told News Shopper: "This major new leisure quarter will add additional vitality to the town and we welcome all these businesses to Bromley.

"This landmark leisure-led development, with housing and parking, demonstrates the attractiveness of our borough to businesses and it is positive news for the town centre and the local economy that these restaurants are opening with the cinema, no doubt, underpinning their business model to an extent."

Tickets for the new cinema start at £7.99 and the building has nine screens.

Dan Surridge, Vue Bromley’s general manager, said: "Bromley is a vivacious town and we’re delighted to be opening in St Mark’s Square.

"We can’t wait to welcome customers to experience the very best in big screen entertainment with us."
