Refurbished Lisburn business park secures multi-national tenants
TWO new multi-national tenants have been announced at a retail park in Lisburn.
Laganbank Retail Park re-opens this month following an extensive refurbishment project, and has secured the lettings of renowned brands, TK Maxx and PureGym, meaning that two thirds of the retail park is already occupied.
The site is located in Lisburn city centre with prominent frontage onto Laganbank Road – the main arterial route through the city.
Following success in Belfast, Bangor and Derry, PureGym's new store in Lisburn is its first in the city.
Duncan Costin, acquisition director for PureGym said they were delighted to be opening in Lisburn.
"The new site will allow our growing membership base to benefit from access to our low-cost, flexible and high-quality fitness facilities. We plan to take full advantage of the significant footfall in Lisburn and its surrounding catchment areas.”
TK Maxx have commenced fit out works on site and will be opening in August. Additionally a coffee pod is currently under construction and will open later this year.
CBRE secured the lettings on behalf of a local investor with construction work on the project completed by JH Turkington & Sons Limited.
CBRE director Alana Coyle said: “The retail sector in Northern Ireland continues to perform well and remains resilient, and the fact that Laganbank has attracted such strong retail brands demonstrates the appetite for retail in Lisburn.”
Uel Mackin, chairman of Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council's development committee added: “This latest development for Lisburn is excellent news and a welcome addition to our ever-expanding retail offering. The Council is driving forward with its ambitious vision for the economic growth of the area promoting it as the best connected most business-friendly location in Northern Ireland."
