White City Retail Park now fully let
Acting on behalf of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation, the Derwent Group has let the final unit at the established White City Retail Park in Old Trafford, Manchester to UK based home furniture company, Novia Furniture.
Novia is set to move in to a 9,500 sq ft unit having agreed a 10-year lease. This is Novia’s third store as it expands its national presence.
White City Retail Park is one of eight retail parks across the North that the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation owns. Situated opposite Old Trafford’s stadium, the 220,000 sq ft retail and leisure park is home to more than 18 occupiers including Wren Kitchens, Furniture Village, Dreams, Aldi and Marks & Spencer.
James Maule-Finch, Senior Asset Manager at the Derwent Group, comments: “Over the next few months we will be investing more than £1 million on behalf of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation to improve the existing offering at the popular retail park. We will be carrying out an extensive refurbishment of the former Halfords unit and adding a new façade to the unit to align with the rest of the scheme’s high end retail appearance.”
The Derwent Group was represented by Cheetham & Mortimer and CSP. Avison Young acted on behalf of Novia Furniture.
