Fashion retailer ZARA will take a 32,000 sq ft unit spanning over two floors, the brand’s first outlet in the city. They join jewellery retailer Goldsmiths, which has agreed to take a 5,000 sq ft space.
The lettings build on what was a strong first half of the year for British Land, which saw 1m sq ft of retail deals being signed across its portfolio.
Both stores are set to open in the Autumn, joining brands such as Apple, Lululemon, Tommy Hilfiger and Levi’s.
Kate Lea, head of shopping centre leasing at British Land, said: “ZARA’s decision to choose SouthGate for its first store in the city is a testament to the popularity of the destination, and the work we’ve done to make the centre as attractive and engaging for customers as possible.”
