St Modwen Crosby

St Modwen closes in on Crosby full house

The regeneration specialist has secured deals on two further units at the redeveloped village centre in Crosby.

Village Vets Formby has signed a 10-year lease on a 3,830 sq ft first floor unit at 10 Moor Lane, above a newly-opened Peacocks branch, and will open in November. The unit will be in addition to its original practice.

The Aesthetics Hub, which specialises in non-surgical treatments, has also taken new premises in Glenn Buildings South.

Run by independent nurse prescriber Abbey McLaughlin, the business will relocate from Waterloo and will be situated above Card Factory. Work has already begun to transform the premises into a clinic due to open later this year.

Kate Higgins, principal vet and owner at Village Vets Crosby, said: “We have been looking for the right premises to locate our second practice for some time now and the newly refurbished units within the Glenn Buildings provides a perfect base for us.”

Andrew Day, asset manager at St Modwen, said: “We are pleased to see that the investment St. Modwen has made in Crosby continues to revitalise the centre and bring a range of new occupiers to the village centre.

“The quality of the retail units and office space has proved popular with occupiers. With only two units remaining, a function space and an office unit, we are confident that the available space will all soon be let.”

St Modwen was represented by Lambert Smith Hampton in both deals.

Other occupiers signed up include Costa Coffee, café bar Frankie’s and longstanding local business The Blues Bar.

Caddick Construction delivered the 20,000 sq ft retail project for St Modwen in 2017, including the full-scale refurbishment of the existing Glenn Buildings North and Glenn Buildings South as well as the replacement of number 10 Moor Lane with a two-storey retail and leisure unit.
