Work on Sandgate Park, on Myton Way at The Rings, could start as early as the spring if planners give the go-ahead
More details about for a long-awaited mini mall in Ingleby Barwick have emerged – including a restaurant or brasserie.
The Sandgate Park development has had interest from convenience store operators and estate agents to bakeries, butchers, bookmakers and coffee shops, a property agent behind the scheme has said.
Commercial agent CPNE says a restaurant should be a “key focus” for the 12-unit paradeoff Myton Way at its junction with The Rings – so the development can “differentiate itself from the existing retail offer” in Ingleby Barwick.
Sandgate Park’s main outlet will be convenience store.
And because construction has not yet started, CPNE says it can accommodate specific space requirements from individual retailers, “subject to planning and design limitations”.
Richard Wilson is joint letting agent with Dodds Brown, which has also been appointed by developer Sandgate Park to market the new centre.
He said: “ Ingleby Barwick is one of Europe’s largest private housing estates with household numbers expected to exceed 25,000 this year.
“This new high quality neighbourhood development will provide restaurant and convenience shopping and other services for this growing population, and represents a real opportunity for a whole range of retailers.”
Joint letting agent Andrew Wilkinson of CPNE added: “We have had interest in the remaining units from potential occupiers such as convenience store operators, estate agents, bakeries, butchers, hair salons, bookmakers and coffee shops.”
“As the units are not yet built, we can still accommodate specific spatial requirements, subject to planning and design limitations, from individual retailers.”
A planning application for the development was submitted before Christmas.
Subject to planning approval, construction is expected to start this spring ready for an autumn completion date.
