St Modwen sign more to Wembley Central

wembley central nov 2012St. Modwen has announced the arrival of four new retailers to its Wembley Central development.

The new retailers include a new Tesco Metro store, Sports Direct, and The Gym.

The 10,000 sq ft Sports Direct will be open by early December, while Tesco Metro will start fitting out in March and will create around 90 new jobs in a 16,000 sq ft full-line store – the largest foodstore in the area. The Gym will create up to 30 new jobs.

A 16,000 sq ft anchor store in the final phase of St. Modwen’s regeneration project has also been pre-let to what the developer says is “a popular national retailer of homewares and electrical goods”.

Construction on the final phases is due to start in late November 2012.  This phase also includes an 86-bedroom Travelodge with a bar / restaurant, an upgraded Wembley Central station and 38 private flats adding to the 117 built so far.  St Modwen say 95 per cent of the existing apartments have already been sold or rented.

Planning consent for the last phase, which will overlook the public square adjacent to Wembley Central tube and train station, was granted earlier this year.

Killian Morris, senior development manager at St. Modwen, explains: “This latest announcement demonstrates retailers’ huge confidence in Wembley and reinforces the impact our investment is having in establishing a new heart for the town centre.  Residents and shoppers are already benefiting from new stores – including a TK Maxx, Everything Everywhere, Brighthouse and Iceland – and an increasingly vibrant environment around the train station and new public square. These exciting new brands will further emphasise the appeal of the town centre, providing shoppers with more choice and variety.”
