Langney extension goes ahead in Eastbourne

Terms have been agreed for Home Bargains to open in a 15,000 sq ft store alongside existing anchor Tesco. Work will begin in June this year. The 35,000 sq ft extension will see 12 new units opened and terms are now agreed for more than 70 per cent of the space. New tenants include Burger King, Subway, Costa Coffee and Holland & Barratt.

“The extension has been mooted for years so we are very pleased it now has the go-ahead and it will give the scheme momentum” says GCW director Nick Warr.

Recent activity elsewhere in Langney includes the reletting of the former M&Co unit which has been split into two. The first 1,800 sq ft unit fronting onto the Mall has been let to The Works on a 10 year lease at £40,000 pa. The second unit is 1,400 sq ft and fronts onto the car park. It has been let to Ladbrokes who relocates from elsewhere in the scheme on a 10 year lease at £35,000 pa.
