St Modwen to develop further phase of Worcester Retail Park with Oswin developments

St Modwen Developments Ltd, the development subsidiary of St Modwen Properties PLC, has completed a collaboration agreement with Oswin Developments Ltd and Helical Retail Ltd to relocate the First Bus depot at Pheasant Street, Worcester, and redevelop its three-acre site as the third  and final phase of Shrub Hill Retail Park.

St Modwen obtained planning consent for a 1,394 sq m (15,000 sq ft) foodstore and 1,858 sq m (20,000 sq ft) of bulky goods retailing on the site in March 2001 as part of its comprehensive scheme for the redevelopment of the Tallow Hill area which included the realignment of Tallow Hill and George Street and the construction of a new road and footbridge over the canal.

The majority of the scheme, comprising mainly bulky goods retailing, has been completed and is fully let to major retailers such as Staples, Wickes, Carphone Warehouse, Blockbuster, Tiles R Us and Pizza Hut.

St Modwen acted for itself. David Gee acted for Helical Retail and Oswin Developments.
