Waterford upgrade underway

Reconfiguration of Waterford’s City Square begins
The work, which is scheduled to complete in June 2017, will see the creation of a large 17,000-sq ft unit over two floors as well as extensive modernisation of public areas and the reconfiguring of several units to improve shopper experience and facilitate modern retailer requirements. As part of the work, a major redevelopment of the food court on the first floor will be undertaken which will provide four new restaurant and café units.
Letting agent Lambert Smith Hampton is already in discussions with several international brands for the large unit.
Located in the heart of Waterford, City Square is laid out over two main retail floors and comprises a two-storey Dunnes Stores food and clothing store, a two-storey Debenhams and 34 retail units and kiosks. The centre has 450 car parking spaces over two basement levels. Other retailers include River Island, Peter Mark, Eir/ Meteor and Holland & Barrett and the centre attracts an average weekly footfall of approximately 110,000.
At the end of 2017, both Specsavers and GameStop have relocated to larger units within the scheme with Inglot choosing City Square of its first store in the south east of Ireland. JD Sports will commence the fit out of a 4,370-sq ft unit later this month.
