The shopping centre is part of Aberystwyth's masterplan project
Plans have been unveiled for a new multimillion-pound shopping centre in Aberystwyth.
The development is earmarked for a former Post Office sorting site in Chalybeate Street in the town centre.
It is part of a major project outlining the shape of Aberystwyth for the next 20 years called the Masterplan.
Plans by developers Marlin Homes and Cityheart of Chester are expected to be submitted to Ceredigion council in the coming months.
The 90,000 sq ft (27,432 sq m) retail project will attempt to attract high street names to the town, said Cityheart.
Mark McNamee, managing director of Cityheart, said: "This is a significant site for Aberystwyth as it presents a unique opportunity to expand the town's current retail offering.
"There are a number of high quality retailers such as Marks and Spencer and Debenhams with requirements for the town and this scheme will attract new retailers to the area which will boost the local economy prevent leakage and complement its existing retail offering."
Mr McNamee added: "We are currently working with our appointed architects, The Pozzoni Design Group, together with the Welsh Assembly Government and Ceredigion County Council to finalise plans for the proposed scheme which will both preserve and enhance the historic buildings on the site."
