Fashion chain New Look is opening a 35,000 sq ft flagship store at a Land Securities and Hammerson 1m sq ft joint venture in Bristol.

New Look was originally taking 22,000 sq ft at Cabot Circus, in Bristol City Centre but decided to expand it’s presence by taking an additional 13,000 sq ft.

The £500m scheme, being developed by the joint venture Bristol Alliance, is said to have already achieved 75% of its floor space letting.

The centre will house 120 stores, anchored by a 170,000 sq ft House of Fraser, as well as 13-screen cinema and 200 hundred new homes.

Other fashion retailers signed up to take space include Harvey Nichols, Zara and Top Shop.

Cabot Circus is due for completion in Autumn 2008.

Joint letting agents for the scheme are DTZ and Lunson Mitchenall.
