John Lewis & Victoria Gate confirm opening date

Aug 4, 2016

Hammerson's £165 million Victoria Gate development in Leeds and its anchor tenant John Lewis are set to open their doors to the public on Thursday 20 October, 2016.

The scheme is currently 74% pre-let and will also boast new retailers including Russell & Bromley, Aspinal of London, Neom Organics, T2, GANT, Hackett, Tommy Hilfiger and Anthropologie.

Robin Dobson, Director Retail Development at Hammerson said: 'It is great to be able to confirm the official launch date for Victoria Gate as the 20 October. Ideally timed for pre-Christmas trade we are delighted to bring this new and iconic retail destination to Leeds and one that is set to be the largest premium retail and leisure destination outside of London.

The shopping centre will be anchored by British retailer John Lewis. James Prince, Head of Branch, said: “It's our most service and experiential led shop to date, as we continue to offer more for customers that can't be replicated online.”

Hammerson and Leeds City Council hope Victoria Gate will help further consolidate the city as a premium shopping destination in the North of the UK.

Victoria Gate will become part of the new 575,000 sq ft Victoria Estate shopping district, which also includes Leeds’ Victoria Quarter arcades.
