Exciting new retail scheme in St Marychurch, Torquay nears completion


The Freshwater Group, in association with Development Managers Total Property Solutions, is nearing completion on the redevelopment of the former General Accident Insurance offices in Torquay to create a range of commercial and residential properties in the exciting new retail scheme in the heart of St Marychurch, Torquay.

With Sainsbury’s already signed up, Alder King has been appointed to market the retail units which are due to be completed over the summer. Configured in a courtyard style with new leases offered on a pre-let basis, the scheme includes a variety of sized units to accommodate requirements from 500 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft. The properties have planning consent for a variety of uses including A1, A2, A3, A4 and A5. This would allow for retail, restaurant, café, takeaway, betting shops and professional services amongst others.

Marketing agent Lee Southan of Alder King comments: “This is an exciting time for the new scheme as it nears completion. The remaining units offer retailers an opportunity to occupy prime space in this popular suburb adjacent to a brand new Sainsbury’s convenience store. This is a rare opportunity in Torquay and we are experiencing a strong level of demand.”
