Plans have been approved for a new designer retail outlet on the A1(M) in North Yorkshire. Located at Scotch Corner at the junction of the A1(M) and A66, the 23,225 sq m village is planned to have 90 retail units and 10 restaurants.
Construction is scheduled to commence in 2017, and commercial real estate company Colliers International will soon be commencing marketing for the space, which will be known as Scotch Corner Designer Village. The £50 million project will generate an estimated 700 new jobs for the area.
'Scotch Corner Designer Village is at a prime location and provides a fantastic opportunity for designer brands seeking a presence in the north of England. The scheme addresses a very clear deficiency for a facility of this type in the region and will provide a much-needed, niche destination,' says Simon Waterfield of Scotch Corner Richmond LLP.
