Carter Towler’s retail agency team has successfully secured three new tenants for Central Arcade on Briggate in Leeds city centre. All three businesses are moving to units on the first floor of the arcade prominently located opposite the entrance to the Trinity Leeds Shopping Centre.
Commenting on the trio of deals Carter Towler’s head of retail Pete Bradbury said: “After all the difficulties the retail sector has had to face in the past year and a half, it’s fantastic to see confidence in the city centre bouncing back.
“Central Arcade already has a vibrant mix of retail and leisure businesses and we are working hard to build on that. The first floor in particular is becoming quite a sought-after leisure destination and we are delighted that all of these new tenants bring complementary services.
“There is just one unit remaining on the ground floor now, Unit 10A, which has been completely refurbished. With the recent upsurge in demand I’m sure it won’t be long before it’s occupied.”
The new tenants consist of beauty business Dragonfly Skin, who has taken a five year lease on Unit 7A; personal training company BodyUpWomen has agreed a three year lease on Units 11 & 12 and specialist beauticians Glory By Tina have taken a five year lease on Unit 17.
The covered, contemporary shopping arcade which is jointly marketed by Carter Towler and Aston Rose has 20 units and occupiers include national and independent retailers including Greggs, Bella Italia, King Koby, Yellow Sunrise and Flamingos Coffee House.
