Middlemarch site could become leisure complex

Thu, 04 Aug 2022

Plans to redevelop the Middlemarch site in Lower Douglas have been unveiled.

Altostratus Limited s has agreed to acquire the one acre site opposite the bus station.

The development would include offices, a 250-space multi-storey car park, and a three-storey leisure and entertainment complex incorporating a casino.

John Bell the Project Manager for ADG Architects, said: “The proposed development at Middlemarch will be one of the biggest commercial schemes seen in the town centre for several decades and will help link the growing leisure offering on the North Quay with the well-established shopping and business districts in Lower Douglas. “Subject to obtaining the necessary approvals to move their casino licence, Palace Hotel & Casino Limited will be an anchor tenant for the development, with two of the three floors in the leisure complex earmarked for their casino, conference, and entertainment offering. “Altostratus is working closely with the Manx Development Corporation (MDC) to ensure that the scheme fits well with MDC’s wider aspirations for the Lower Douglas area. Further discussions will take place with MDC over the coming weeks ahead of the formal planning application being lodged later this year”.
