A new retail scheme is being proposed at Ingleby Barwick in Stockton.
Sandgate Park will consist of 12 retail units, anchored by a convenience store, with strong interest from a variety of local, regional and national retailers – as illustrated (above) in a computer generated image.
Subject to planning approval, construction of the 14,262 sq ft retail development is expected to start on site this Spring (2016) with completion in the Autumn.
It is located off Myton Way, Ingleby Barwick, at its junction with The Rings, and prominent from the main Myton Way frontage.
“Ingleby Barwick is one of Europe’s largest private housing estates with household numbers expected to exceed 25,000 this year,” said joint letting agent Richard Wilson, of Dodds Brown.
“This new high quality neighbourhood development will provide restaurant and convenience shopping and other services for this growing population, and represents a real opportunity for a whole range of retailers.
“We have had interest in the remaining units from potential occupiers such as convenience store operators, estate agents, bakeries, butchers, hair salons, bookmakers and coffee shops.”
Joint letting agent Andrew Wilkinson, of Commercial Property North East, added: “As the units are not yet built, we can still accommodate specific spatial requirements, subject to planning and design limitations, from individual retailers.
“The development should accommodate a restaurant/brasserie as a key focus for the parade and to differentiate itself from the existing retail offer in Ingleby Barwick.”
A planning application for the development at The Rings was submitted before Christmas and is expected to be determined in February.
