Wythenshawe town centre owner and the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, St. Modwen, has announced a further four lettings totaling over 12,000 sq ft at its £100 million Wythenshawe town centre development scheme in South Manchester.

The four new deals brings the number of vacant units in Wythenshawe town centre to just two as it continues to experience strong trading. Anchored by an ASDA superstore, Wythenshawe town centre services a large proportion of residential and commercial areas in South Manchester.

St. Modwen has secured deals with shops Barnardo’s and Sue Ryder, national weekly payment retailer Perfect Home and Polish delicatessen Euro Deli to take a total of just over 12,000 sq ft of town centre retail space. Barnardo’s and Perfect Home have already started trading with Sue Rider and Euro Deli set to open their doors in the coming weeks.

Wythenshawe town centre manager Victoria Nichol said: “We have been working hard to keep driving the momentum behind Wythenshawe town centre forward and these four lettings are a key part of that process. We have signed pre-lets with both Wilkinson and Netto for a new development in the town centre.

“We strongly believe that we can continue building on the current levels of confidence in Wythenshawe as a thriving town centre while maintaining its place at the heart of the town.”

The four new lettings are all situated on The Birtles within the town centre and are comprised of:

Barnados, 1,770 sq ft
Sue Ryder, 4,862 sq ft
Perfect Home 4,070 sq ft
Euro Deli, 1,336 sq ft

St. Modwen and the City Council have worked closely on the regeneration of Wythenshawe Town Centre since1996 when St. Modwen entered into a long-term lease/development agreement with the city. The first stage was the relocation of the market, the upgrading of the malls, new retail space built in Haletop and a general refurbishment programme involving the entire centre.

Plans for the 43,000 sq ft development at Etrop Court are at an advanced stage of negotiation with significant pre-lets already in place with retailers Netto and Wilkinson.

Agents Colliers CRE and Jonathan Fellows acted for St. Modwen.
