Victoria Quarter and Victoria Gate - Leeds
A unique and exciting addition to Leeds’ vibrant shopping scene
Bruce Gillingham Pollard act as Joint Agents on the shops and restaurants at Victoria Quarter and Victoria Gate in Leeds.
The new Victoria Gate will be linked to the established Grade ll listed Victoria Quarter and with the John Lewis anchor store, it will comprise over 500,000 sq ft of shops and restaurants plus 850 car parking spaces. The existing Victoria Quarter, anchored by the first regional Harvey Nichols, is home to the largest collection of aspirational stores outside Central London. Other key stores include All Saints, Timberland, White Company and Mulberry.
The instruction covers both the new shopping quarter and asset management of the existing Victoria Quarter.
Victoria Gate represents a huge opportunity for retailers with £540m of additional sales available from the highly affluent areas of Harrogate, Ilkley and York as well as further attracting the city’s fashion conscious shopper and the strong population of wealthy students. Planning approval was granted in September 2013 and construction of the £150million development began in April 2014. Alongside regenerating the physical space, the first phase will also deliver up to 1,000 retail and hospitality jobs and 1,000 construction jobs onsite.
