Holt Commercial has landed the instruction to market the available space in Coventry city centre’s West Orchards Shopping Centre, according to a report from insider media.
The company is working on behalf of the private owners of the shopping centre after it was acquired by them via auction earlier this year.
There are a range of units available between 395 sq ft and 5,281 sq ft and with opportunities available for retail and leisure operators.
The centre is currently home to a range of brands including WHSmith, Marks & Spencer, Footasylum and Costa Coffee, as well as a range of other independent and national names.
Chris Hobday, associate director at Holt Commercial, said: “We are very pleased to have been instructed on West Orchards Shopping Centre. Our Coventry office is just a few minutes’ walk from the centre and, as a company, we want to see the city centre doing well.
“Despite the issues over the past year or so, we’ve achieved a series of prominent lettings in the city centre and so we are confident that working alongside CWM we will be able to fill the available space in West Orchards with a range of exciting occupiers.
“The new owners also recognise that there is still more to do in terms of attracting new occupants and so we are looking at every potential opportunity to bring businesses into West Orchards. That means we are looking at other potential uses such as a wide range of leisure operators, together with health, semi-medicinal and beauty orientated outlets amongst others.
“We are already seeing some very strong interest as potential occupiers recognise that this is an exciting opportunity to become part of Coventry city centre’s premier shopping centre.”
