A MULTI-million pound ­extension to a Glasgow shopping centre is expected to bring in around £1million in rental income.

Hammerson, the landlords, said the new leisure-focused units at Silverburn, which will include nine new restaurants and a 14-screen cinema, will open in autumn this year.

Top chains including Zizzi, Pizza Express and TGI Friday have already signed up, with 84% of the space already ­spoken for.

A company spokesman said: "The restaurants are ­expected to operate from ­this autumn with the remainder of the scheme open for ­business early next year."

An extension planned at Abbotsinch Retail Park in Paisley, which Hammerson acquired in October 2012, could also be completed later this year.
