The development will allow the transformation of the existing scheme into a significant shopping centre destination, featuring contemporary shop units with double height glazing and oak panels centred around a new town square. Situated between the two harbour cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, and adjacent to an existing Tesco supermarket, the scheme benefits from excellent accessibility via Junction 9 of the M27.

Main construction work is scheduled to begin on site in early 2012 and completion is projected for spring 2013.

The designer outlet shopping centre has now been fully demolished and work is due to start on the new “Contemporary design” featuring double height glazing and oak panels and making use of natural materials.

There are 50 units planned and currently around half have been pre-let. Some of the companies lined up to fill the new centre include H&M, JD Sports, Boots, Frankie & Benny’s and Starbucks. Along with retail giants Next and Marks & Spencer.
