Lincolnshire Co-op’s £70m redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter has attracted some major retailers to its mixed-use scheme in the centre of Lincoln. The new signings total 7,100ft², with the overall regeneration anticipated to deliver in excess of 150,000ft² of mixed-use commercial floorspace over a series of development phases.

The most recent of these lettings sees two distinctive brands joining The Cornhill Quarter in the Waterstones building, which is leaving to focus on its sister site on the High Street. A Superdry franchise store will occupy the ground floor and Robert Goddard’s designer clothing store will open on the first floor.

Superdry is an exciting contemporary brand which focuses on high-quality products that fuse Vintage Americana and Japanese-inspired graphics with a British style.

Robert Goddard, a business established in 1895, offers trusted premium fashion brands, and will be their 7th location in the East of England.  These brands also follow several other great signings for the Cornhill Quarter over the last year, including Phase Eight, Hobbs and Whistles and will bring two new unique characters to the city.

Oliver Tookman, CEO, Aldrich Group Ltd said:

“Lincoln is definitely a place that has been growing and positively evolving in the last few years and we are delighted to be opening our franchised Superdry store and our very own Robert Goddard in the Cornhill Quarter. We are excited to meet our new customers and deliver the service that we are famous for.”

Ursula Lidbetter, Lincolnshire Co-op’s Chief Executive, commented:

“We got feedback that people were keen to see more men’s fashion, so it’s great to welcome these superb new additions to The Cornhill Quarter line up.”

“We continue to progress our long-term vision to create a destination for residents and tourists alike, with a carefully considered mix of both big name brands and local retailers, helping to boost the city’s offering for the local community and attracting visitors from further afield.”

Lincolnshire Co-op is undertaking the large-scale regeneration of the city centre. The Cornhill Quarter scheme is rejuvenating a significant area of Lincoln’s retail pitch encompassing Cornhill, Sincil Street and St Mary’s Street, through a sensitive combination of repair, refurbishment, extension and new development. The first phase of the scheme, The Corn Exchange building, has been carefully restored and completed in 2017. Construction works are also complete on the second and third phase of the scheme and the refurbishment of shopfronts on Sincil Street is now underway, expected to be completed this autumn.

In addition, £30m has been invested in related transport infrastructure improvements by the Council and a further £1.5m to enhance the urban realm of the scheme.

Lincolnshire Co-op was represented by Banks Long & Co and KLM, with the tenant represented by McMullen Wilson.
