Baddeley Court retail development in Newport Latest

Author | 23 April 2019

Scheduled to open this summer, the Baddeley Court retail scheme in the town centre facing the main car park will see the former supermarket site transformed.

The new 18,000 sq ft redevelopment by Freshwater will welcome household retail names including Peacocks, Specsavers, Card Factory and Savers with a further 6,800 sq ft available for retail and leisure operators in a striking two level and glazed fronted unit.

The 130 space car park makes this a prime retail location with pedestrian link to the market town’s busy traditional High Street with its mix of independent specialists and national operators.

Andrew Thomson of developer Freshwater said: “We have been evolving these plans for a little while and are very pleased to be on site now transforming the vacant space into a vibrant retail area. This is a significant investment and a vote of confidence in the town and its retailing.”

Mark Cherry of retail agent Smith Price RRG, advisors to Freshwater, said: “We’ve seen significant interest in these units and are pleased to be able to announce a strong line up even before we finish the transformation. Despite all the negative stories regarding the state of the retail market and the High Street generally, market towns like Newport are still robust retail centres and there is strong demand for the quality retail space that Baddeley Court will provide. The two remaining units are available as one large area if required and are ideal for a leisure, catering or tradition retail business.”
