The letting is seen as a catalyst for the centre and is part of the strategy to improve its mass market shopping offer. A refurbishment programme is now in place for the coming year and includes new mall finishes, improved lighting and way finding. A new main entrance from the high street will be created as well as some double height shop fronts to add drama to the scheme.
New lettings include a unit on High Street Mall to mobile phone accessory retailer, Top Gift with 799 sq ft on the ground floor and 739 sq ft on the first floor at £28,500 pa on a five year lease. Warren James is also moving to High Street Mall on a five year lease at £32,500 pa. It opens in a unit with 755 sq ft on the ground floor and 44 sq ft on the first floor.
“We are committed to making long-term improvements to the centre. The deals are all about delivering a step change in the scheme and reflects the high level of activity in Maidenhead town centre as the town gears up for Crossrail opening” says Ed Kievenar asset manage at owner Vixcroft
