H&M leads flurry of lettings in Redhill
Belfry Redhill Unit Trust has signed a series of new additions, including a 21,000-sq ft letting to H&M, at the Belfry shopping centre in the heart of Redhill town centre, Surrey.
The new H&M store will take a prime location in the central mall, with 8,200 sq ft on the ground floor dedicated entirely to childrenswear and 12,800 sq ft on the first floor for both menswear and womenwear.
Following a successful temporary letting, independent Surrey- and Sussex-based toy shop, Toy Barnhaus, has taken a permanent 2,207-sq ft unit on the upper trading level. High quality multi-brand jewellery store, Pitch Blue, opened a 515-sq ft store located at the Station Road entrance. Also recently welcomed is nationwide food and coffee shop, Muffin Break, trading from a 1,063-sq ft store.
Alongside new additions, several brands have relocated within the shopping centre. O2 has more than doubled the size of its original store, taking a 1,725-sq ft unit located at the High Street entrance. Card Factory now occupies a 2,260-sq ft store, with Robert Dyas having moved to a 4,192-sq ft unit, which is adjacent to WH Smith. These relocations were undertaken as part of the site assembly for the recent H&M letting.
Lambert Smith Hampton is letting agent and director of retail leasing Ian Henton said: “The estimated combined capital investment by the landlord in this string of additions is in excess of £2m, clearly demonstrating the strong commitment and confidence in the future of the centre.”
