Regent Court is a shopping arcade south of the centre of Leamington. Located on the edge of what is considered as the main retail loop in the historical core, it was suffering from low footfall and subsequent unit letting issues.
Corstorphine + Wright created and delivered a holistic strategy to convert the retail into restaurant and café use, including major public realm improvements. Regent Court is now the only fully pedestrianised shopping street in the town offering a selection of well known and independent eateries and high street fashion retailers. Public art was commissioned and installed in the main square along with bench seating and soft landscaping creating an attractive ‘dwell’ area.
The finished scheme transformed Regent Court into a thriving leisure quarter that created a new draw to support the retail elements. The area was completely revitalised and proved popular with locals and visitors alike.
