Eastgate from the car park in Union Street showing demolition in progress
20th June 2014. View from the car park in Union Street to Eastgate showing demoltion in progress of one of the 'Book End' buildings. The demoliton of numbers 44 to 46 Eastgate, formerly Hoagy's Bar, is part of Phase 1 of the new retail and leisure development to be known as 'Victoria Gate'. These red brick buildings lining Eastgate were a continuation of Sir Reginald Blomfield's scheme for the Headrow and Eastgate begun in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The first phase of the Victoria Gate development will include a flagship John Lewis Store, the Victoria Gate Arcade, a twin street arcade linkiing the Victoria Quarter to the John Lewis store and a multi-storey car park with 800 spaces. The first phase is expected to open in the Autumn of 2016.
