Looking Down Over the Eastgate Shopping Centre Development Site, 1980s

This photograph, taken from the Crown area, looks over the construction site of Eastgate Shopping Centre (Part I).

The total cost of the original centre was £13 million. The developers, Life Insurance Company and Cruden Developments, invested £11 million. The Highland Council spent almost £2 million on site acquisitions, roads and street lighting.

A dominant feature of the complex was the three-storey car park with room for 650 vehicles. The charge for parking at that time was 20p for a two-hour stay and £1 for all-day parking.
