GCW’s shopping centre team visited five new centres for the in-depth appraisal. These are The Broadway in Bradford, Friars Walk in Newport, Hinckley’s The Crescent, Flemingate in Beverley and Birmingham’s high profile Grand Central.
The review offers a detailed, illustrated guide to each centre with photographs and maps. It highlights GCW’s shopping centre team’s analysis of the highs and the lows of each centre including a summary on its connectivity, leasing success and anticipated future. Each centre also receives an overall GCW rating. A fuller analysis will be made on Hinckley in the 2016 review when the majority of its retail is open.
“Our clients value our opinionated analysis on these centres. We’ve tried to offer them all the key facts and include our own insights based on an in-depth visit. They are geographically spread around the country so we are aware that many clients do not have the resources to visit every one themselves” says GCW director David Gooch.
