A new one million sq ft shopping mall in Leeds city centre set to open on 21 March is already 90 per cent pre-let.
Trinity Leeds – which is flanked by the city’s three busiest streets including Briggate – is owned by Land Securities and will be the only major retail development to open in the UK this year. The regeneration project has attracted huge interest from a range of multiples, independents and fashion brands with numerous names signing up for outlets when rental contracts became available last year.
Just over half the size of the Trafford Centre in Manchester, the mall will include the UK’s largest Superdry and the first Victoria Secret’s store outside of the capital. Other big names include the likes of Topshop, M&S, Next and River Island while North England independent jewellery group Phillip Stoner has also chosen it as the home for its third Leeds store.
The opening is expected to lead a significant increase in the city’s annual retail figures, attract new visitors and provide hundreds of jobs.
