Phase one of the St. Modwen developed Trentham Lakes District Centre has reached full occupation following the letting of the final retail unit to Set In Stone Hair Design Ltd.

The letting of the 1,000 sq ft unit completes the occupation of the 21,135 sq ft of retail space at the District Centre, part of the wider Trentham Lakes development. The six units provide a range of shops and services including a 16,135 sq ft Aldi food store, veterinary practice and takeaway facilities, as Euan Lindsay of regeneration specialists St. Modwen explains:

“We are delighted to have completed the occupation of the first phase of the District Centre with a business that brings yet another facet to the retail mix at Trentham Lakes. The District Centre has been designed to provide local residents and those that work and live in the area with a variety of useful facilities and we believe we have successfully achieved this.

“It is particularly pleasing in the current market to see a new retail development fully occupied and successfully trading across a range of sectors. The success of the District Centre further strengthens our belief in the importance of local out of town retail and service facilities and as such we are now turning our attention to development of the second phase. Potential uses for this include a pub, restaurant, neighbourhood facility and possible further retail units.

The District Centre forms part of the 400 acre Trentham Lakes business, leisure, and residential community, being developed by Stoke on Trent Regeneration Ltd, a joint venture between St. Modwen and Stoke on Trent City Council. Over 50 companies are currently based across Trentham Lakes with the thriving business community strengthened through its combination of local and national businesses.
