“Seasalt will be taking a 2,500 sq ft unit for 10 years,” said Alex Kalebic, Associate Director at Cooke & Arkwright. “It will be the retailer's first store in Wales, while Joules will expand into a larger unit of 1,750 sq ft from its existing outlet in Mumbles. Nextcolour are doing an excellent job on the overall scheme which will be a real boost to Mumbles' profile, benefiting locals and attracting even more visitors.”
Mr Kalebic said that the Co-op food store, which currently occupied the property, would relocate to the redeveloped Tivoli building. Seasalt and Joules will invest around £500,000 to it out the refurbished units, reflecting the size and location of the new premises. The fashion retailers will join a number of leisure and restaurant operators at the development including Prezzo and Loungers cafe.
Oyster Wharf will include restaurants, leisure operators and shops and will help to boost trade in the town, making it an extremely attractive retail and leisure destination. Mumbles is an affluent, up-market suburb of Swansea, forming part of Swansea Bay which is in the UK's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and also marks the beginning of the Gower Peninsular.
