News: Fit out at new Rotherham retail units


Opening dates have been pencilled in for the first outlets at "Gate Park," Gregory Projects' new 50,000 sq ft development at Parkgate in Rotherham.

The land owner, Rotherham recycling experts, Ron Hull, teamed up with Leeds-based developers, Gregory Projects to bring forward a potential retail development on the site of a former car showroom at Great Eastern Way.

The first phase secured pre-lets from Aldi, Iceland and Home Bargains. With Iceland already open, Aldi is set to open on October 8 with Home Bargains on October 10.

Gregory has also confirmed deals with Pizza Hut and Barnardo's to take the remaining two units to complete phase one at the four acre site. Development is underway for the second and final phase comprising 9,400 sq ft of space with 4,400 sq ft already pre-let to Formula One Autocentres. Completion is expected next month.


Richard Tovey, director at Gregory Projects, said: "We are pleased to reach completion of the first phase, allowing prime tenants to fit out and open in time for the run up to Christmas. This project has proved to be a major success where we have managed to pre-let 90 per cent of the space well in advance of completion. This is testament to the quality of the location and the need for a new range of discount shopping options for the Parkgate community. We have just one 5,000 sq ft unit remaining with strong interest."

With funding from Bramall Properties Ltd, construction is being carried out by Sheffield-based JF Finnegan as the main contractor. The Leeds office of Bilfinger GVA advised Gregory on the pre-lettings and is marketing the remaining accommodation in conjunction with the Sheffield office of Knight Frank.
