Lincolnshire Co-op has signed Seasalt for its £70m redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter in Lincoln. This follows shortly after some other exciting signings for the scheme, including 200 Degrees and The Botanist.
Seasalt will take 2,500 sq ft of space and will be located in one of the newly refurbished Sincil Street shops, sitting alongside speciality coffee roaster and wholesaler, 200 Degrees. This forms parts of phase two of the redevelopment, which has already delivered 23,000 sq ft of retail space and a bright, attractive walkway through to the multi-storey car park.
The Botanist will take 8,000 sq ft bar/restaurant split over ground and first floors and will be located in the third phase of the development, which sits opposite the completed Corn Exchange building. This phase will also be home to a 30,000 sq ft Everyman Cinema and will animate this historic setting with a dramatic two-storey glazed façade, and a roof terrace bar with views of the Cathedral. Between this building and the Corn Exchange is Exchange Square, providing a new public space for the city.
The Cornhill Quarter scheme is rejuvenating a significant area of Lincoln’s retail pitch encompassing Cornhill, Sincil Street and St Mary’s Street, through a sensitive combination of repair, refurbishment, extension and new development. The first phase of the scheme, The Corn Exchange building, has been carefully restored and completed in 2017. Work is now reaching completion on the second phase of the £70 million Cornhill Quarter redevelopment, and work begun in January 2019 on the third phase of the scheme to build new units including the Everyman Cinema.
The scheme is also home to an array of other brands including; Cosy Club, Moss Bros., Flying Tiger Copenhagen, Thomas Cook and Lakeland, all helping to create a revitalised city centre retail destination.
Redwood Consulting manages the B2B and B2C PR and communications for the scheme, and has assisted the Lincolnshire Co-op in announcing new lettings to the market and the local community.
