A1 Shopping Park celebrates milestone
A construction milestone was celebrated last month at the £110 million A1 Shopping Park, Biggleswade’s new London Road retail complex owned by Aberdeen UK Property Fund, with a special ceremony led by Councillor Hazel Ramsay, the Mayor of Biggleswade Town Council; Lucy Duncan, from Aberdeen Asset Management; and Nick Alford, from developers LXB Partners.
A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held on site to mark the completion of the main construction works and the start of the final phases for fitting out the new stores ready for the scheme to open.
LXB Partners began the transformation of the London Road retail park site in 2013 and the final phase of the 300,000 square foot development is due to open to the public during the summer. The new complex, which boasts a host of top quality retail brands including Boots, M&S, Next, River Island and TK Maxx, is creating more than 500 jobs for local people.
Aberdeen UK Property Fund acquired the development 12 months ago in addition to White Way Retail Park, Homebase and land adjacent to the park, all of which reflect its long term investment rationale.
Campbell Marsh advised on arrangements for the construction PR milestone.
