The second phase of Trafford Retail Park has reached practical completion with fit out work now commencing on the new Aldi and Starbucks drive-thru stores.
With the 1,800 sq ft Starbucks drive-thru unit set to open in July 2020 followed by the 18,568 sq ft Aldi following later in the year, the stores will join an already strong line up of retailers including Dunelm, Food Warehouse, Nando’s and B&M and are set to further boost the park’s 4.8 million annual footfall figure.
Havercroft Construction was the main contractor for the works at the Barton Road scheme, instructed by Peel L&P’s retail parks team which received planning approval in March 2019.
Roger Wheeldon, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Retail Parks said: “During these uncertain and testing times, it is fantastic to see phase two complete at Trafford Retail Park. Our main contractor, Havercroft have shown great resilience and worked hard to keep the project moving under very difficult conditions. The new phase of the park adds additional parking including parent and child and disabled spaces, electric vehicle charging points including fast charging and CCTV for security.
Peel L&P have also made a substantial financial contribution to offsite highway improvement works that will be carried out in due course by Trafford Borough Council.
Grant Bailey, Director of Havercroft Construction said: “Our successful delivery of phase two at Trafford Retail Park is quite simply a result of the sheer determination and dedication of our project team and supply chain and I thank each and every one of them. Alongside this, Peel L&P have been entirely supportive and pro-active in their approach under difficult circumstances and I am delighted at the outcome for everyone. It is encouraging to see a demand for new retail property and I would like to thank Peel L&P for this opportunity.”
Savills and Avison Young were the letting agents for phase two of Trafford Retail Park. Phase two of Trafford Retail Park has been pre-sold to Azko Nobel Cif Nominees Limited for an undisclosed sum. Nick Short of Prime Retail represented Peel L&P in the sale.
