Children’s charity Action for Children has selected Hortons’ Estate and Trebor Developments as the development partner for a prominent site in Sutton Coldfield.
The charity has set up at Princess Alice Retail Park in Sutton Coldfield, which is owned and managed by Standard Life and currently home to occupiers such as Next, Marks & Spencer, Currys, Boots and Tesco.
Hortons and Trebor are proposing a comprehensive retail development of 18,000 sq ft for which a planning application is being submitted in later this month.
Complementary retailers to further extend the tenant line up are being sought; joint agents are Bartlett Property and Gerald Eve, Birmingham office. Jonathan Hall, asset services manager at Action for Children, said: “We are delighted to work with the developers Hortons/Trebor on this project. Our aim is to leave a legacy that will benefit the local community, whilst we continue to help support vulnerable children throughout the area.”
Bob Tattrie, managing partner for Trebor Developments, said: “Hortons/Trebor are delighted to have been selected for this key retail site and we plan to bring forward a comprehensive high quality retail development that compliments the strong existing offer. Our aim is to start on site in summer 2012, and we are expecting strong tenant demand for this new high quality retail development.”
