ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2020-2021

Project Detail

Great Central Station – Lane7, Leicester

Property Deal of the Year Award 2020-2021 Finalist

Lane7 is a leisure operator which struck a deal with Charles Street Buildings to create an all-day entertainment venue at the former Central Station site in Leicester.

At 20,000 square feet, the space is Lane7’s biggest venue in the UK, enabling an ambitious scheme featuring innovations such as double-decker bowling lanes.

Lane7 took a 21-year lease, investing more than £1 million in creating a multi-use venue for street food, bars, bowling, mini golf, basketball, table tennis, pool and a large screen for events.

Project Overview

Central Station site developer Charles Street Buildings agreed a 21-year deal with Lane7 as the ideal operator for the unique space. The long-term lease meant Lane7 could create a unique offer.

Charles Street Buildings says Lane 7 fits its long-term vision for the site and the wider regeneration project as the operator is well placed to adapt to changing trends in entertainment.

Lane7’s all-day operation complements other uses of the wider site, including the two new hotels overlooking the Central Station building. Lane7 provides an entertainment option that did not previously exist in that area of the city.
