Debenhams to anchor Flemingate retail and leisure development

Wykeland Group has revealed that Debenhams is to anchor the retail element of its Flemingate mixed-use regeneration scheme in Beverley which is set to open in late 2015.

Situated adjacent to the historic Beverley Minster, the £120 million scheme consists of 162,561 sq ft of retail and leisure space. Debenhams will open a 40,000 sq ft new concept store at the development while Parkway Cinemas will provide the leisure anchor with a 33,723 sq ft five-screen digital cinema.

Debenhams property director Rob Hadfield said: “We were really impressed by the quality of the planned retail environment at Flemingate and are delighted to be in place to anchor the scheme.

“Alongside robust growth in our multi-channel offering, we believe our new Debenhams department store will greatly enhance the shopping experience for the people of Beverley.”

Flemingate will also include an 80-room Premier Inn hotel while restaurant chain Zizzi will lead the dining offer by opening a 3,200 sq ft restaurant.

Wykeland Group managing director Dominic Gibbons said: “The signing of Debenhams, Premier Inn, Zizzi and Parkway is a great way to begin construction of Flemingate. We are creating large format stores and providing a complementary dining and leisure offer that together extend Beverley town centre. Our focus now is on carefully selecting the right mix of brands to create a critical mass of offer that draws visitors from across the region.”

Flemingate’s retail and leisure offer will be complemented by a 500-space multi-storey car park and a 60,000 sq ft campus for East Riding College. Once finished, Flemingate will create approximately 700 jobs.
