Kyle Centre, Ayr

Our proposals for the Kyle Centre aim to maximise the full potential of the existing building and its key town centre location. This is achieved by the transformation from a predominantly retail based offer to a more focused leisure led destination through the careful addition of a new 7 screen (1050 seat) Cinema and the creation of (circa 4,250sqm) new Food and Beverage units to compliment this.

Retail still forms an important element of the proposal through the creation of the new 15,000sqft Major Retail Unit to Carrick Street, and the retention of existing retailers to High Street and the ability to house further retail space within the new mall area.

The addition of a new contemporary entrance building on High Street will greatly enhance the visibility and presence of the centre. This, together with the refurbishment of the existing mall and central roof lit space to provide a new ‘street’ and ‘urban square’ will firmly position the rejuvenated Kyle Centre as a key leisure destination in Ayr and the wider area.
