The fashion retailer will be relocating from its current store on the Briggate shopping street in favour of the larger, three storey 46,000 sq ft unit.
Topshop left the site in 2021 following the collapse of parent company Arcadia Group and the closure of all physical Topshop and Topman stores.
The announcement of the new store comes as part of Zara’s store optimisation plan to create “bigger, better and more beautiful stores in the best retail destinations globally”.
Head of brand account management at scheme owner Landsec, Nik Porter said: “As guests demand more from their shopping experience, brands are prioritising prime locations that drive footfall, enable customer service and have the ability to integrate in-store and online shopping experiences.
“Our retail strategy allows us to work in partnership with brands holistically to find them the best locations and ensure that their physical presence adds value to their wider multichannel offer.”
