Developers are now on site transforming the listed buildings in the historic market town and with an archaeological dig now complete, construction is full steam ahead.
Gardiner Place will offer 23,000 sq ft of retail space across 14 units and will combine boutique shopping, restaurants and luxury apartments. It will connect shoppers to the main Waitrose supermarket, the town’s main car park and Market Palace in the heart of the town. Eight retail units and two restaurants will open within the development with three extra units facing Market Place. The first letting has been agreed to bring an independent dining concept led by a well-known chef to the former Loch Fyne restaurant.
“We are confident there will be demand to open in this attractive market town which benefits from a wealthy catchment and a strong tourist spend” says GCW director Chris Hovington.
Catalyst Capital bought the portfolio four years ago as part of a package of high street properties and shopping centres.
