Lidl has already opened at the site.
FHP Property Consultants who acquired the old Beechdale Baths site from Nottingham City Council for Lidl have confirmed that Lidl, Costa Coffee Drive-thru and Treetops are now open and trading, with Greggs, Subway and Pepe’s Piri Piri currently fitting out.
David Hargreaves said:
“The site of 2.90 acres sits in a really prominent position fronting the outer ring road with access of Beechdale Road and is surrounded by hundreds of chimney pots.
A stand-alone Lidl store normally needs circa 1.5 acres of land so this site was larger than required, so we introduced the surplus land to the retail development specialists and Nottingham based developer, HDD Limited, who bought the surplus land off Lidl.
A combined planning application was submitted for a 23,000 sq ft Lidl, 6 retail units and a Drive Thru with construction starting autumn 2019 under one build contract.”
Jack Shakespeare of FHP said: “There is just one unit available and that is under offer.”
“Obviously, the lockdown had an impact on the build programme, but Stainforth Construction worked on site throughout to deliver a fully completed scheme only a couple of months late”.
As the location is so good, FHP who were instructed by HDD Ltd to find tenants for the 6 shops and Drive Thru, were able to agree terms relatively quickly with the likes of Costa Coffee, Greggs, Subway, The Tanning Shop, Pepe’s Piri Piri Chicken and regional charity Tree Tops, prior to Christmas at rents of £25,000 – £27,500 pa for 1,250 sq ft.
