By then the arrangement had become "meaningless", as the majority of the company's shares were controlled by property developer, John Whittaker. Crucially, the council were powerless and Peel held voting rights due to majority shareholding. Manchester City Council opposed the development, believing it would impact negatively on the city centre economy, but accepted it was "obviously in the interests of the shareholders". Peel Holdings submitted a planning application to Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council for a development on approximately acres of land in The application was "called in" by the Secretary of State for the Environment and legal disputes ensued requiring two public inquiries before planning permission was granted.
Issues involved congestion on the M60 orbital motorway,  and some believed the development would have adverse consequences on shopping centres throughout Greater Manchester region and beyond.
Construction began in and the centre opened on 10 September becoming the UK's last "mega mall" which combined retail, dining and leisure facilities. Due to further expansions at the Metrocentre in Gateshead , it has once again been reduced to the second largest of its kind in the UK. The Trafford Centre's unorthodox style of architecture was prompted by the wish to offer a unique shopping experience. John Whittaker , chairman of Peel Holdings , had to convince architects that a lavish design would not alienate shoppers.
Make it plain, make it clinical, make it white and hospitalised and let them do the work". So then we put in the paintings, we put in the real gold leaf, we put artefacts everywhere, paintings. It is something to attract shoppers The design was a collaboration between the architectural practices of Chapman Taylor and Manchester-based Leach Rhodes Walker. Such was the size and detailing of the building, architects ended up producing over 3, separate shop drawings on the drawing register and the construction process required twenty-four chartered architects to work on the project full-time to monitor the construction and interior design process.
The centre has four main areas across two floors, Peel Avenue, Regent Crescent, the Dome, and the Orient, and was designed so that visitors enter on both main shopping floors in equal numbers.
The Trafford Centre was built to be "future-proof" in the words of developer John Whittaker with the infrastructure for an additional fourth floor built during construction. It is decorated primarily in shades of white, pink and gold with ivory, jade and caramel coloured marble throughout. There are three domed atria along the length of the mall, and Peel claim the middle dome is bigger than that at St Paul's Cathedral. The Lancashire Rose also permeates the décor on window panes and interior cornices.
Mythical griffin statues adorn the exterior, the heraldic symbol of the de Trafford baronets who historically owned much of the land in modern-day Trafford. Others, however, have criticised the deception of the fake palm trees and neo-classical decorative pillars which are not made of marble but decorated medium-density fibreboard. Since it opened in , advances have been made in lighting design and efficiency such as the growth of LED lighting.
Since , incandescent light bulbs have been phased out in favour of LED lighting allowing different shades of hue as well as greater efficiency. Portraits around the walls of the mall depict members of the Whittaker family, founders of owner Peel Holdings. A Mercedes car belonging to the mother of Peel Holdings' chairman, John Whittaker, is displayed on the first floor mall outside F.
A feature of the centre is many statues and other sculptures. There are over figures mainly in the style of classical Greek and Roman or Art Nouveau statues and decorations, particularly in Barton Square and the connecting bridge to it. Sculptor Colin Spofforth created bronze figures of a jazz band by the New Orleans themed area,  and also the Trafford Crest, above the main entrance. The Orient is in a central hall-like spur and is a 1,seat food court themed on a s liner.
Burger King moved into the Trafford Centre in November This glazed structure houses five restaurants and cafes. The retail unit now occupied by John Lewis was previously a market-themed area for independent stores named the Festival Village. Marks and Spencer has an outside entrance to the foodhall.
The dome in the middle of the centre is home to more upmarket stores such as the first Selfridges outside London. It also houses Waterstones bookshop, and Debenhams. The crescent leads down to the main dome. Planning permission was granted for further expansion in October It is linked to the centre by a glazed bridge. Its architecture is based on an Italian square and includes a large fountain and a campanile tower.
This section of the centre targets high-quality homewares market with units offering furniture, kitchens, bathrooms and home furnishings. Barton Square has struggled to be economically viable since its opening in In , planning permission was approved to add an additional level of retail to Barton Square as well as a glazed barrel vaulted roof similar to the one that covers the main mall.
Leisure facilities include a screen Odeon multiplex cinema,  a Laser Quest arena, Paradise Island miniature golf , a Namco Funscape with dodgems , bowling and arcade games. The adjacent Trafford Quays Leisure Village has a Chill Factore , Trafford golf centre, a skydiving centre, and an indoor football facility. Developer John Whittaker, stated in that it is " future proof " with areas available on the third floor for possible new developments.
Long-term plans include expanding Barton Square retail space, building retail areas on unused land and attracting retailers that currently do not have a presence. Its popularity has resulted in traffic congestion on the M60's Barton High-Level Bridge, requiring a link road adjacent to the M60 crossing the ship canal on a new lift bridge.
All vehicles entering the centre have number plate details recorded via automatic number plate recognition. There is a bus station at the west end of the Trafford Centre with services to most towns in Greater Manchester. The nearest Manchester Metrolink station is Stretford.
Metrolink and the local authorities have declared that the link must be at least in part privately funded by developers. Construction could take a year, although the project has not yet started.
