The tenant carried out a comprehensive redevelopment of the unit, including mezzanine floor and new frontage/signage zones. As part of this redevelopment Ediston has also secured consent for the sub-division of unit 7/8 to form a new 10,000 sq. ft. unit 7, which has been let to Wren Kitchens for their only store in Ayrshire and Unit 8 is under offer to a national gymnasium operator.
Wren Kitchens and the gymnasium will open in autumn 2018.
Several other exciting asset management plans are under way and further new retailers will be arriving at Heathfield later this year.
Alastair Dickie commented: “DSG is the 12th letting we have completed at this park in the last 3.5 years and the Wren and Gym lettings will take that to 14. We have seen that following widening of the planning consent and Ediston refurbishing the frontages and car parking areas as well as providing a new development of 45,000 sq. ft. of space and 6 units that we managed to attract a number of new retails and retain those with lease expiries in 2018. Our expertise in this areas has also resulted in the ERV tone move from £17 per sq. ft. to £23.00 per sq. ft. The park is now looking very busy and from retailer feedback is trading very well.”
