The Centre, Feltham is a one million sq ft retail, leisure and residential development. GCW has advised on the scheme for almost 20 years. As part of an ongoing drive to improve the tenant mix, the team has secured a letting to Dunelm. The retailer opened a new store in the former Next unit. Dunelm agreed a 10-year lease and joins a range of tenants including an anchor Asda food store, JD Sport, Poundland, Matalan and Superdrug.
GCW was also instrumental in securing PureGym, which has exchanged on a 15-year lease for the unit previously occupied by Argos. That deal came alongside a range of complementary F&B lettings. Indian street food operator Chaiiwala is taking Cards Direct’s former unit and will trade alongside new arrivals Wenzel’s The Bakers and German kebab chain GDK.
The Centre incorporates around 60 stores and 850 car parking spaces. GCW has worked with Aviva to provide a mixed use offer that meets the needs of the local community. Alongside shopping, the centre’s comprehensive offer includes community facilities such as a library, Travelodge and medical centre.
GCW Associate Director Archie Morriss said: “These recent retail and F&B lettings really boost the tenant mix and demonstrate the enduring attraction of the asset. At GCW we have applied our knowledge and expertise to secure new occupiers and create a vibrant visitor destination in the heart of Feltham town centre.”
