Victoria Gate and John Lewis confirm opening date

Shopping centre operator Hammerson has confirmed that Victoria Gate, its new 165 million development in Leeds, and anchor tenant John Lewis will open their doors to the public on 20 October.

The scheme will become part of the new 575,000 square foot Victoria Estate shopping district which also includes the city’s Victoria Quarter arcades.

Speaking of the anchor store, James Prince, head of branch at John Lewis Leeds, said: “It's our most service and experiential shop to date as we continue to offer more for customers that can't be replicated online. My new team of Partners are really looking forward to serving the people of Leeds and welcoming everyone on opening day.”

Victoria Gate is currently 74% pre-let with tenants also including Russell & Bromley, Aspinal of London, Le Pain Quotidien, Neom Organics, T2, GANT, Hackett, Tommy Hilfiger, Anthropologie and international restaurant group D&D.

Robin Dobson, director retail development at Hammerson, said: “Ideally timed for pre-Christmas trade we are delighted to bring this new and iconic retail destination to Leeds and one that is set to be the largest premium retail and leisure destination outside of London.”
