Hammerson starts £10m redevelopment of Fife Central retail park
The redevelopment will deliver 8,000 sqm of reconfigured retail floor space replacing a vacant Homebase unit with new contemporary fully glazed retail units ranging from 6,000 to 21,500 sq ft plus two new catering pods that are likely to be used by coffee shops or grab-and-go food outlets.
Hammerson has already secured a strong line-up of leading retail brands, including Sofology, Wren Kitchens and DW Sports to take new units, all of which mark firsts for the brands in Fife.
To further enhance the scheme, Hammerson has also worked with existing retailer, PC World to right-size a unit for an enlarged store and will shortly welcome another new retailer, carpet and flooring specialist Tapi, to the park.
All works are anticipated to be complete by the Summer 2017.
Andrew Berger North, UK director of retail parks at Hammerson, said: “It is a fantastic result that we are now delivering this redevelopment project. As the region’s leading retail park we want to ensure that the scheme continues to deliver customers with the very best mix of retailers as well as experience when they visit, which is why we have worked hard to bring forward our plans.”
