Enabling works completed ay Hammemrson’s £50m Didcot scheme
Construction work on the expansion of the Orchard Centre in Didcot will begin in May, following the completion of necessary enabling works which started in January. This follows the signing of a 250-year lease agreement by Hammerson and South Oxfordshire District Council for phase two, providing up to 21 new shops and seven cafes and restaurants.
Major names already signed up for the 95,000-sqft extension include M&S Food Hall, H&M, River Island and TK Maxx, as well as Costa Coffee and Starbucks. The new phase will also see new public areas and an additional 191 car parking spaces. The new shops, restaurants and cafes are expected to open in spring 2018.
