Land Securities to open 2km of retail frontage in 24 hours

Shopping centre owner and developer Land Securities has announced that it will open two kilometres of retail frontage over a 24 hour period next spring.

The company's Trinity Leeds shopping centre will open on 21 March 2013 and will be followed by the opening of 185-221 Buchanan Street in Glasgow 24 hours later.

Trinity Leeds, which at the size of 13 football pitches is the largest retail and leisure development under construction in the UK, has  84% of its space pre-let or in solicitors’ hands.  The scheme will be home to a number of retail brands making their debut in Leeds including D&D London, Everyman, Hollister, Fossil, Mango, and Superdry.

Glasgow’s 185-221 Buchanan Street development is 99% let or in solicitors’ hands and will house the  first Forever 21 store in Scotland as well as Paperchase’s first Scottish flagship store. Other brands taking space in the shopping centre include Gap, Fat Face, Skechers, Office and Watches of Switzerland.

Lester Hampson, head of retail development at Land Securities, said: "Land Securities is bringing an extra two kilometres of retail frontage to the UK market in one day. Our confidence in the success of both the Trinity Leeds and Buchanan Street schemes sends a very clear message to the international market: the UK economy is growing, and is open for business."
