Whiteley town centre has been completely transformed into a modern, open and desirable retail destination creating more than 1,000 new jobs.
It was the first shopping centre in the UK to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. The 300,000sq. ft development is anchored by a large, flagship Marks & Spencer store whilst also boasting a mix of the very best high street brands amongst its 70 retail and leisure outlets.
Created as a natural environment with open spaces, the design creates a pleasant and relaxed setting for visitors to meet, dwell, dine and shop. Use of natural materials, extensive landscaping and specially commissioned public art throughout the streetscapes strengthen the enhanced approach to this shopping experience.
Since completion of the shopping centre Corstorphine + Wright were further commissioned to deliver a multiplex cinema and leisure complex on the site.
