Commercial property agent Lambert Smith Hampton has announced that over 60 jobs have been created in Waterford’s City Square Shopping Centre in the last six months as a series of new lettings have followed the completion of a multi-million euro redevelopment project.
Since completing a large-scale redevelopment, several big name stores have come to call Waterford’s City Square Shopping Centre home, with dozens of new jobs created. The redevelopment project saw the creation of a large 17,000 sq ft. retail unit over two levels as well as the modernisation of public areas and the reconfiguring of several units to improve shopper experience and facilitate modern retailer requirements.
Starbucks will become the latest new tenant, when it opens a flagship store this coming March. The global coffee chain has secured a 1,800 sq m unit in the Food Hall. The new coffee shop will join recently-opened Chopped, in the Food Hall, while other new lettings in the centre include JD Sports, Carraig Donn, Inglot and Bookstation.
“We are excited to confirm that a global brand has chosen City Square as its newest flagship location in Waterford,” said a representative of the centre. “Starbucks will be a welcome addition to anchor the food and beverage offering and we expect a high level of anticipation ahead of its opening. Our Food Hall is now almost fully let with one unit in negotiations and another available to let.
“The shopping centre has undergone an impressive transformation recently,” the spokesperson added. “We are speaking to a number of other exciting retailers for a variety of units which range in size, including a two-storey space that fronts on to Arundel Square. Our intention is to continue to welcome local, national and international brands to the centre with the primary focus being the multi-space user unit.”
