New Retail Opportunities at Plymouth Cross

Seven new retail and leisure opportunities have now been launched at the £50m Plymouth Cross development which will be open for business after summer 2019.

Central to the regeneration of Plymouth’s West End, the mixed-use redevelopment of the former Derry’s department store includes a range of units that can be configured to suit individual requirements.

Expected to attract shops, cafes and restaurants, the street level units range in size from around 1,300 sq ft to 4,000 sq ft.

Plymouth Cross will also be home to a 110-room Premier Inn and 500 high end students rooms from leading student accommodation provider Homes for Students.

More than half the 64,000 sq ft of retail and leisure is already let to occupiers including Argos, Ryman and Premier Inn’s Thyme restaurant.

Colin Morris, director at the developer Thames Bank said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire retail and leisure space in this landmark building. With 30,000 full time students, 5.5 million annual visitors and, in 2020, the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower sailing to America, this is the time to take a fresh look at Plymouth.”

Joint agent Chris Ryland, managing director at Stratton Creber Commercial in Plymouth, said: “The development will significantly enhance the West End and should increase the level of footfall, boosting other businesses in the area.”

Joint agent Mike Wimble, partner at Knight Frank in London, said: “Plymouth Cross is a pivotal development that will anchor the western end of the city centre.”
