New retail terrace starts on site at Straiton RETAIL PARK as Trespass signs deal

The highly anticipated 25,500 sq ft retail terrace at Straiton Retail Park is due to start on site late November 2019. After it was given the green light in October 2018 by Midlothian council, the eye-catching £10 million development will be built and managed by Peel Retail Parks, part of Peel L&P.

Housing up to 11 tenants, with Greggs, Starbucks, Card Factory, The works, Trespass and Archers Sleepcentre already committed to the site, the new retail offer will improve the shopping experience bringing a new tenant dynamic to the park, providing more choice and convenience for the community.

Leah Taylor, Development Manager at Peel Retail Parks, part of Peel L&P, said: “We are excited to start on site with this development and look forward to welcoming the new retailers to Straiton Retail Park. We’re confident the high specification terrace will be welcomed by shoppers in Summer 2020.”

“We’re defying the negative headlines surrounding retail and attracting national stores across a number of our parks across the UK. Our continued investment into improving the retail parks for both our tenants and customers has allowed us to make way for the existing operators who are really getting their retail concept right.”

Construction work is due to start in the coming weeks, with a 33-week build period and store opening dates to be confirmed in due course. There is limited space available within the new development, interested retailers should contact Leah Taylor with any enquiries on 0161 629 8427 or To see a CGI fly through of the development, click here.
