Esk Properties 6m plan for Livingston town centre

Following their recent hotel and restaurant success at Livingston Hub, Esk Properties, an Edinburgh-based developer, has announced plans to develop a 6million retail scheme in Livingston town centre.

The developer has submitted a planning application to West Lothian Council for a 1,160 sq m (12,500 sq ft) retail development. The plans include scope for full mezzanine cover and 42 car spaces at The Parkway. The new development will be built on the site of the former Safeway petrol filling station adjacent to the Almondvale Shopping Centre and McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Centre. The development should be available for occupation in Spring 2007.

Esk Properties Managing Director, Grant Aitken, said: "We have consulted for some time with West Lothian Council officials to ensure the proposals meet with their design requirements for the site and we hope to start on site this summer."

Ryden has been appointed as the letting agent and John Conroy of the firm's Glasgow office confirmed Ryden was already in detailed discussions with a number of national operators with requirements between 94 sq m (1,000 sq ft) and 279 sq m (3,000 sq ft). John said: "This is a superb site for roadside retailers who are keen for high profile representation in the highly successful Livingston market and we expect the development to be fully let upon completion'.
