Photos: progress at St George’s Retail Park

Rothstone Estates and CDP, advised by Savills, is making excellent progress with the construction of St George’s Retail Park in Middleton.

Due to complete in July 2024, with the 65,000 sq ft, the park will open in the autumn.

Ian Hare, director, out of town retail, Savills Leeds, comments:

“St Georges Retail Park is a new development and upon completion, the scheme will provide new quality units, and a diverse mix of retailers in a prime location. With three units already let to Aldi, B&M and Costa Coffee and another three under offer, we are expecting a high level of interest for the remaining space.”

The development on the former Benyon House (Co-op) and bus garage site had a tortuous journey through the planning process. As we have previously reported, planning permission was finally granted in 2019. That decision was appealed by neighbours Asda, but they lost in the High Court in 2021.

  1. If there is an Aldi here then what is going to happen to the Aldi at the former Middleton Circus which has only been open less than 10 years? I am very surprised at this to be honest.
