£10m new retail terrace gets the go-ahead at Straiton retail park
A 25,500-sq ft new retail terrace at Straiton retail park has been given the green light by Midlothian council, with a planned £10 million investment by Peel Retail Parks, part of Peel Land and Property.
The new eye-catching, glass-fronted building will sit fronting Straiton Road and will house up to 11 new tenants featuring a line-up of top brands, with Greggs, Starbucks, Card Factory and Archers Sleep Centre already confirmed. Construction work is due to start in Summer 2019, with a 33-week build period.
Leah Taylor, development manager at Peel Retail Parks, said: “The high-specification retail terrace, with additional parking, adds a further attractive retail offering to this already successful park, providing shoppers with a more diverse shopping experience. We’re in very advanced negotiations with a number of national retailers for the remaining units.”
