This scheme is one of the top 5 shopping parks in the UK consisting of over 300,000 sq. ft of retail warehousing space. It is predominantly occupied by a strong mix of fashion retailers including M&S, Next, River Island, JD Sports and H&M. Both Next and River Island made considerable investments into the scheme by upsizing their stores in 2013, whilst Schuh and Moss Bros are due to open on the park later this year.
Visitors also benefit from a broad choice of restaurants and cafes including Nandos, Harvester, Frankie & Bennys, Starbucks and Costa.
The shopping park is located in a highly prominent position along the A47 approximately 4.5 miles north east of Birmingham City Centre. This location provides the scheme with excellent visibility to a consistent flow of traffic passing between Junctions 5 and 6 of the M6, as well as providing proximity to a number of densely populated suburban towns.
