Whiteley Shopping Centre, the £84 million retail and leisure development opened in May 2013. 91% let at opening, the centre has 58 shops and restaurants which are a combination of local independent retailers and well-known brands. Anchored by a 60,000 sq ft M&S, other tenants include: Boots, Fat Face, H&M, Next, Mamas & Papas, Frankie & Benny’s and Tesco.
Whiteley Shopping Centre represented the latest in retail design. Whiteley became the first UK shopping centre to achieve a BREEAM 2008 ‘Excellent’ rating including the use of 100% sustainable timber panelling, extensive landscaping and specially commissioned public art, all contributing to the streetscapes of the centre being as much of a destination as the shops and restaurants themselves.
Our role on Whiteley comprised managing the project from inception, through the planning, design, procurement and construction phases, to successful completion. We liaised directly with all tenant teams through the Agreement for Lease process as well as the management of the tenant fit out programme. We were delighted to be reappointed for, and successfully delivered the Phase 2 Cinema and Phase 3 is currently pre-contract.
