IT’S WHAT WE KNOW
The Metis retail team has a long standing involvement with The Rock, a substantial 620,000 sq ft retail and leisure development which opened in 2010. We initially acted for Hammerson, and now for Kennedy Wilson.
The scheme has attracted Debenhams, Next, Primark and Vue Cinema alongside H&M, TopShop, River Island, Superdry, JD, Nando’s and Pizza Express among others.
We have also delivered a number of new high profile retailers to the scheme including Simply Be, Footlocker, Lush and Burger King amongst others. Other lettings have been concluded to Smiggle, Card Factory, Select, Swarovski, Hotter Shoes, Pandora, Subway and Greggs.
A focused and aggressive letting strategy has driven a vacancy rate of around 20% in 2011 down to less than 5% today, helping The Rock mature into arguably the most successful town centre fashion anchored scheme in Greater Manchester.
A planning application has been made for this development at The Rock, which is being pre-let by the Metis Leisure agency team.
