Lincolnshire Co-op has announced Lakeland as the next exciting brand to take space in the major Cornhill Quarter development in the heart of Lincoln. The quality kitchenware chain will take 4,000 sq ft of space in one of the newly refurbished Sincil Street shops/units currently under development. Redwood Consulting manages the B2B and B2C PR for Lincolnshire Co-op’s development of the Cornhill Quarter, and advised on the PR for this latest letting, securing coverage in trade and local press.

This latest letting follows on from news at the end of last year that Everyman cinema will open a four screen cinema in phase three of the development, which recently received planning permission. Everyman will be located opposite the Corn Exchange building, which completed in October 2017 and is home to Cosy Club, Flying Tiger Copenhagen, Moss Bros and Thomas Cook.

Phase two of the redevelopment which includes the unit for Lakeland will deliver 23,000 sq ft of retail space, as well as a bright, attractive walkway through to the multi-storey car park. The timber frames for the shop fronts and windows along Sincil Street are being handmade locally by Lindum Joinery, to provide traditional shop fronts in keeping with the original Victorian street scene.

Construction for phase two is progressing well with timings on track for completion before Christmas 2018.
