10,000 sq ft of new lettings at Friars Walk have brought Queensberry’s retail and leisure development in Newport to 85% let, with less than five weeks to go before it opens on 12 November. Retailers Jack and Jones, Tiger and The Body Shop, have signed up joining Next, H&M, Top Shop, New Look and River Island, plus a 95,000 sq ft Debenhams store.

The restaurant section is now fully let with Wagamama taking space alongside Prezzo and GBK. Huw Thomas, Director of Retail and joint retail agent on the scheme with Lunson Mitchenall and Nick Young & Co, said “Friars Walk is going to make a big difference to Newport's fortunes and there is huge anticipation building ahead of the launch date.”

Blake Morgan committed to 29,000 sq ft office in the exciting Central Square development. We retained Ben Bolton and his team some time ago to advise and appraise options in the lead up to this significant move of our Cardiff Office. The business is extremely pleased with the outcome and Ben's negotiations and attention to detail was a major part to this.
