Crimple Hall shopping centre set for large retail extension
Our Leeds office has been appointed as the letting agent for Crimple Hall Shopping Centre, which is about to embark upon a 26,500 sq ft extension.
The centre, situated on Leeds Road between Harrogate and Pannal, has appointed the Leeds agency team to source high-quality retailers to occupy the space, which has been designed by NJ Architects of Ilkley.
Graham Watson, CEO of Crimple Hall said: “We’re very excited to be expanding the centre in such a significant way. Increasing the retail space by 26,500 sq ft will support the growing success of the centre, and see additional high-quality brands move in.
“Working with Sanderson Wetherall, acting as our letting agent, I’m confident the centre will become one of the most attractive retail destinations in the region. Located fronting the main A61 to the south of Harrogate, one of the busiest roads in the area, this is a rare opportunity for high quality retailers to locate in one of the most affluent towns in the country.”
The development, which will be situated between Crimple Hall’s current location and Harrogate interiors, was granted planning permission in 2015 and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017. The centre currently offers a wide range of gardening products, furniture, antiques, gifts and a restaurant.
Peter Heron, partner in our Leeds agency department, said: “We’re delighted to be acting as the letting agents for Crimple Hall. It is already a well-known and popular destination with a great and diverse range of products. There are a number of outstanding requirements for the town from very high quality retailers and I’m confident that we will be able to attract a number of these to the scheme”.
