Hines secures for deals for The Centre, Livingston
Hines, the international real estate firm, has secured new leases at The Centre, Livingston, signing brands including Hotel Chocolat, New Look, Specsavers and schuh Kids.
Hotel Chocolat moved into The Centre in late August 2019, taking 1,433 sq ft of space on a five-year lease. In addition, New Look are set increase their presence in The Centre, relocating from their current store into a larger 10,700 sq ft space in early 2020.
Specsavers will also relocate from its current location into a larger space at The Centre, taking a 10-year lease on a 3,502 sq ft unit. Fashion brand schuh, who are located adjacent to Specsavers’ current store, will then expand into the vacated unit allowing the footwear retailer to introduce its schuh Kids range into The Centre.
Sharon Bloodworth, director of shopping centre asset management at Hines, said: “The Centre continues to attract the UK’s biggest and best loved retailers, providing a dynamic mix of retail and food and beverage brands. At a time of disruption in retail, The Centre is bucking the national trend, with retailers seeing record footfall and introducing new ranges.”
