GCW is working with owner Tellon Capital to help deliver the 400,000 sq ft development which includes 70,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space on the site of the former Bargate Shopping Centre. The scheme involves opening up the historic town walls and will include retail and restaurants at ground floor street level, and apartments and student accommodation at upper floor levels. A vibrant public realm and retail pavilions will help to create an attractive retailing environment.
GCW is marketing Bargate Quarter and hopes to agree prelets in 2017 with the scheme due to open in Summer 2019. It is aiming to attract aspirational brands focussed on fashion and lifestyle to the 24 retail units including five retail pavilions positioned alongside the restored town wall.
