Project Duration

A first-class entertainment and leisure hub, changing the face of retail at Thorpe Park in Leeds.

The scheme provides over 160,000 sq ft of prime retail, 38,000 sq ft of restaurants, over 70,000 sq ft of leisure including a multiplex cinema, and over 900 parking spaces.

The development created a landmark site on a wider masterplan which includes business, retail and residential accommodation.

ODEON secured a 44,000 sq ft unit for a ten-screen cinema which is located adjacent to, and above the boulevard of restaurants within the leisure cluster.

The retail offering is anchored by Next, Boots, M&S Simply Food, TK Maxx and Outfit who all have major stores at the development.

Complex phasing was agreed to co-ordinate a gas main diversion and major civils work being carried out on adjacent plots.

The retail and leisure development continues our 20-plus year history of working at Thorpe Park where we have constructed everything.

"“It has been a pleasure to work with GMI on the Thorpe Park Retail and Leisure scheme in Leeds, their workmanship and attention to detail are noticeably high.

They have worked closely with us and the wider team to achieve the best results in terms of costing, completion dates and quality.

The size and complexity of the Thorpe Park scheme has not fazed GMI at all, and they have maintained an excellent relationship with all project stakeholders.

The site is very impressive and the GMI team are clearly doing a superb job of managing the project and have been very proactive in incorporating tenant changes into the works mitigating any possible delays.” "
