On Wednesday 18th April, The Brunel Shopping Centre launched The Crossing, a new food destination offering a unique blend of restaurants and cafes for the town of Swindon. The Crossing was officially opened by Councillor Maureen Penny, Swindon’s Town Mayor.
The Crossing has become a key piece of a bigger refurbishment plan for The Brunel. Covering 20,000 sq ft, the food hub is the home of Subway, Triple Two Coffee, Chopstix Noodle Bar, Eggelicious, Indy’s Vegan Kitchen, Boutique Bistro and Soul Shack with a seating capacity of 200+.
James Raspin, Head of Asset Management Offices and Retail:
“The Brunel is very much at the heart of the town centre, and we knew the demand was there from shoppers and others for more restaurants and cafes offering high-quality food of all types,” said James.
“Before FIREM took over the management of The Brunel there had been little investment in the centre for some time, and we’re very proud to have revolutionised The Brunel with this venture. It has opened up the area between the Plaza and the Arcade and brought a new dynamic to the centre. FIREM has a reputation for driving high-quality change, and The Brunel is now a flagship for us – proof of how investment, imagination and an eye for detail can be genuinely transformational.”
