The White City retail park in Trafford is to undergo a £6.5 million revamp with the creation of five new build units, totalling 59,000 sq ft of additional space. Ten of the existing units will also be refurbished and the pedestrian walkways improved as part of the investment by owner Derwent Holdings, bringing the total space at the park to 148,000 sq ft.
The works will be phased to minimise disruption for the park’s existing tenants and customers, which include Pizza Hut, Currys, SCS, Dreams, Furniture Village and Halfords. Four new-build units will be constructed at the west end of the site in phase one, before the fifth new build is built on the east side near to the Currys store in phase two. The majority of the refurbishment of existing buildings will be undertaken toward the end of the programme in phase three.
