GVA’s retail team instructed on largest indoor market in Europe
GVA has been appointed by Leeds City Council to look after all future lettings at Europe’s largest indoor market, Kirkgate, situated in the heart of Leeds city centre.
Leeds City Council has recently invested over £13m in major refurbishment works at Kirkgate Market. This has included redesigning the layout and offering to update what is one of the most iconic buildings in the city.
George Schofield from GVA said: “This is an exciting appointment for the retail and leisure team. The building is well established in the city and surrounding area, and the market is a real success story, having welcomed 7.4 million visitors in 2017. The dedicated food hall offers a great opportunity to welcome more independent food and drink retailers to the scheme to make Leeds Kirkgate Market a hub for local foodies.”
Existing tenants include the original M&S, Blue Bird Bakery, Rafi’s spice box and award-winning street food vendor, Manjits Kitchen.
