Cyfarthfa Retail Park, Merthyr Tydfil
Hammerson completed construction of Cyfarthfa Retail Park in January 2005. The scheme is fully let and comprises 13 retail units and three fast food outlets.
Planning permission has been granted and construction commenced for a new “eco learning” store for B&Q adjacent to the main retail park with practical completion scheduled for June 2014. The relocation of B&Q allows the delivery of a new terrace anchored by Marks & Spencer with an agreement for lease exchanged for a 5,000 sq m store. The new terrace will deliver an additional 4,050 sq m of retail floor space targeted at fashion brands to further strengthen the existing line tenant up. Construction of the new terrace is scheduled to commence in July with completion and opening of the new M&S store and new terrace scheduled for summer 2015.
