The 310,000 sq ft open-air retail and leisure scheme, on the site of Hereford’s former livestock market, comprises 18 retail units, eight restaurants, a cafe, five kiosks, a six-screen Odeon cinema, 600 car park spaces and new public squares and spaces.
The development is the most significant retail and leisure development seen in Hereford for twenty five years and is being delivered at a time of major regeneration in the city, with the introduction of the Rotherwas Enterprise Zone and significant new housing being developed.
The scheme was designed by Allies and Morrison and Leslie Jones and built by Sir Robert McAlpine. The letting agents are Strutt & Parker, Green & Partners and Cushman & Wakefield. The managing agent is Smith Young.
