Practical completion of the second phase of Trafford Retail Park has been reached with fit out work recently commenced on the new Aldi and Starbucks drive-thru stores.
The 1,800 sq ft Starbucks drive-thru unit is set to open in July 2020 followed by the 18,568 sq ft Aldi following later in the year.
Roger Wheeldon, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Retail Parks, said: “During these uncertain and testing times, it is fantastic to see phase two complete at Trafford Retail Park. Our main contractor, Havercroft have shown great resilience and worked hard to keep the project moving under very difficult conditions. The new phase of the park adds additional parking including parent and child and disabled spaces, electric vehicle charging points including fast charging and CCTV for security.
Peel L&P have also made a substantial financial contribution to offsite highway improvement works that will be carried out in due course by Trafford Borough Council.
Located within TraffordCity and close to intu Trafford Centre, Trafford Retail Park has over 740 free parking spaces, with an additional 143 spaces being built to service the new development.
Grant Bailey, Director of Havercroft Construction, said: “It is encouraging to see a demand for new retail property and I would like to thank Peel L&P for this opportunity.”
