Redwood recently managed the B2B and B2C announcement that Lincolnshire Co-op’s £70m redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter has signed up major retailers to its mixed used scheme in the centre of Lincoln.

The new lettings total 13,115sq ft, with the overall regeneration zone anticipated to deliver in excess of 150,000sq ft of mixed use commercial floorspace over a series of development phases.

The most recent of these lettings is Neon Sheep taking 1,711sq ft, along with a 1,600sq ft handmade Doughnotts’ branch, a 2,500sq ft Seasalt and a 7,304sq ft énergie Fitness. This also follows some other great signings for the scheme recently, including 200 Degrees café and HMV.

The opening of Neon Sheep and Doughnotts marks the expansion of these successful and unique businesses across the nation, with Doughnotts’ Lincoln store marking its fourth branch. The stationery and lifestyle brand Neon Sheep, started by the founder of Mountain Warehouse, has expanded in key locations throughout the UK.

Tim Bradford, Managing Director at Banks Long & Co, joint agents with KLM Retail for The Cornhill Quarter, said: “Neon Sheep is the latest major retailer which has demonstrated its confidence in The Cornhill Quarter development. Set against a difficult national background The Cornhill Quarter is ranking very highly with retailers, signifying the success and strength of this mixed use destination.
