Liverpool Shopping Park fills up

Derwent Group has announced a further 45,000 sq ft of pre-lets at the £100m Liverpool Shopping Park, due to open in October this year.

Fashion retailer River Island has taken 6,550 sq ft, TK Maxx 10,000 sq ft, Smyths Toys 15,000 sq ft, sandwich cafe Subway 1,300 sq ft, and an as-yet unnamed high street fashion retailer 13,000 sq ft.

The latest raft of tenants follows the announcement that Outfit, JD Sports, M&S Food Hall and Boots are also joining the park, as well as leisure operators Hollywood Bowl, Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito.

River Island, TK Maxx, Smyths Toys and the fashion retailer will take units in the Western Quarter; a horseshoe of 17 retail units which front on to Edge Lane. Subway will be located close to Frankie & Benny’s and Chiquito, at the park’s entrance.

James Maule-Ffinch, senior asset manager for The Derwent Group said: “We’ve always wanted Liverpool Shopping Park to have a strong focus on lifestyle and fashion and that is starting to come to bear with our latest signings. We’re in final negotiations with a number of other retailers and we’ll be excited to announce those in due course.”

Liverpool Shopping Park will total 727,000 sq ft of retail space once complete as well as parking for 1,500 cars and a leisure offer. AEW is the architect on the scheme. McMullen Wilson, Petch & Co and CSP Curson Sowerby are the acting retail and leisure agents.

No independents then? Perhaps a nice independent restaurant? Or café…………….

Where’s the Starbucks drive through?

Mary, independents in an out of town retail park?

By Phil

I know I know – God loves a trier. Maybe something like Lily’s that is in Eden Square in Urmston – a bigger independent. A nice big café. Just something other than the usual…………..the likes of that would do well there. Surely everyone doesn’t want to just go to Starbucks etc.? I avoid them like the plague.

Or an organic supermarket! Could get the office commuters driving home/into town.
