WORK COMPLETED AT FELLING SHOPPING CENTRE’S £5MILLION REGENERATION PROJECT
Thursday, 28 April 2016
The multi-million pound redevelopment of Felling Shopping Centre, in Gateshead, by Caddick Development and Helmsley Group is now complete.
Located on Crowhall Lane, the regeneration is now fully complete with ASDA opening its doors to join Subway, Boots, Card Factory, Greggs and a local taxi operator who are now all trading on the development.
Caddick Development’s sister company Caddick Construction was responsible for the design and build. Andrew Murray, Managing Director at Caddick Construction, commented: “Our team was on site for 15 months, and I’m pleased to confirm the development was completed on time and importantly on budget. We’re really pleased with the finished scheme particularly as it enabled us to demonstrate our vast knowledge and skill in the successful delivery of retail projects.”
Myles Hartley, Managing Director at Caddick Developments, added: “The strength of experience in our joint venture team together with the experience of Caddick Construction provides a clear indication of the design and build quality at Felling Shopping Centre. We are hugely excited to have fully completed the development and to see our aspirations for the scheme come to life.”
John Reeves, Chairman of The Helmsley Group said: “This scheme has been a long time in the making, there have been many obstacles to overcome in order to get this development progressed and it is great to see the culmination of four years of hard work finally come together with stores opening.
“We are grateful to Gateshead Council for their assistance in bringing this scheme to fruition, they have worked with us to ensure that a successful scheme has been delivered and along with our development partners, Caddick Developments, we are excited to see the impact on Felling High Street that this re-development has the potential to facilitate.”
