Construction starts on new 10,000 sq ft showroom at Solent Retail Park

The Hargreaves Group has announced that development has started on a new 10,000 sq ft retail showroom on the highly successful Solent Retail Park in Havant, Hampshire.

The premises are located next to the A27 and directly opposite the newly constructed Next and M&S. The showroom provides a high profile position plus on-site parking.

Notable occupiers on Solent Retail Park, in addition to M&S and Next, include Mothercare, Laura Ashley, Pets at Home, Peacocks, Hobbycraft, Halfords and Sports Direct. The undoubted success of this scheme, along with the redevelopment of Tesco’s existing unit into the larger ‘Extra’ format provided the catalyst for Hargreaves to embark on further land assembly for a third phase.

Other nearby occupiers include Burger King, The Bike Hut, Majestic Wine Warehouse & McDonalds.

John Butt, director at Lambert Smith Hampton’s Southampton office, explains: “This will be the final opportunity to secure premises at this sought after retail destination”.

The showroom is capable of being sub-divided to form units of between 3,500-10,000 sq ft and these are available on new leases on terms to be agreed.
