NEW RETAIL PARK FOR BARRHEAD COMPLETED Q2 2023
Construction has been completed by London & Scottish Developments, part of Glasgow-based London & Scottish Property Investment Management, to transform the former site of the Nestlé Purina factory in Barrhead into a 70,000 sq.ft retail park.
The 71,600 square feet development includes a Lidl, a B&M and three drive thrus, one of which will be occupied by Starbucks, another will be a Burger King, and the third will be one of the first Popeyes. The development is 98% pre-let with only one unit (1,430 sq.ft ), left available.
Andy Richardson Development Director at London & Scottish, said: “We are delighted to have completed construction of this major investment with tenants now open and trading, or expect to be in Q3 2023”.
“The Barrhead site represents the latest in a series of successful retail developments. We have previously completed retail parks at Cowdenbeath, Aviemore, Cumbernauld, Cupar and Paisley.”
Councillor Tony Buchanan, Leader of East Renfrewshire Council, said: “This is fantastic for Barrhead – it will bring significant new jobs and extend the range of retail on offer within the town. The site has been derelict for 15 years since the factory stopped operating. Thanks to Glasgow City Region City Deal funding we have been able to prepare the land for development and look forward to seeing it transformed into a thriving shopping location through this agreement. London & Scottish has a solid track record in delivering these types of projects and it will be exciting to see it regenerated.”
Implementing the regeneration of this important site is a major part of the council’s plan for transforming Barrhead, which has already seen around £115 million invested in the town.
