The Centre:MK appoints GCW Shopping Centre Team

February 2008

thecentre:mk, the 1.3 million sq ft regional shopping centre in Milton Keynes, has announced the appointment of Gooch Cunliffe Whale as new joint letting agents. Together with CBRE they form part of a strong and experienced letting team that is charged with the brief to explore and exploit further opportunities in the successful centre, which has just reported a record Christmas performance.

The shopping centre, which opened in 1979, is one of the top ten in the UK and draws from a regional catchment of 3 million people. It is at the heart of UK’s largest government growth region with 360,000 new homes targeted over the next 15 years.

David Gooch commenting on the appointment said: “We are delighted with our appointment on a centre which has the potential of thecentre:mk in a massive growth region.  With strong anchors like John Lewis, House of Fraser and the largest M&S in the UK, there are still untapped opportunities. We are looking forward to the challenge of working with CBRE to enhance the tenant mix further to match the needs of the 27million visitors the centre welcomes each year.”
