The Grafton Cambridge signs new anchor fashion retailer
River Island is to open in a newly reconfigured 9,110 sq ft anchor unit at the Cambridge centre, taking a prominent position within the newly revitalised Fitzroy Street mall, relocating from its River Island Boutique store within the centre to upsize by 260 per cent.
The announcement comes as the 500,000-sq ft centre nears the completion of a 24-month, £28.5 million refurbishment programme, asset managed by Wrenbridge on behalf of landlord LGIM Real Assets.
LGIM Real Assets fund manager Tom Williams said: “It’s really positive to see retailers recognising the benefit of the refurbishment work. This has allowed us to enhance the retail offer at The Grafton and create a more appealing environment to attract shoppers and retailers.”
Agents for the scheme are BNP Paribas and Bidwells. Corstorphine & Wright is the architect for the project.
