£165m Victoria Gate luxury shopping destination
Leeds is set to welcome a new shopping experience to the city as Victoria Gate prepares to open its doors tomorrow (20th October 2016).
Four luxury brands have announced they will open shops in the £165m shopping centre which is projected to turn Leeds into one of the top retail destinations in Europe. Hammerson, the developers behind the scheme revealed that brands including Cath Kidston, Ghost, Diverso and Bailey Nelson will join iconic brands like John Lewis inside the shopping centre, which is reviving the city’s historic retail offering.
Development manager for Hammerson, which is responsible for the Victoria Gate scheme, said: “We really are announcing Leeds as the premium retail destination in the North of England. The catchment is far and wide, and there won’t be anywhere that really competes with this style of retail offer.
“It really is a beautiful addition to the architectural scene and also the shopping scene. John Lewis is a stunning store and will be a great asset to this city and community.”
