American-inspired kitchen and bar, Hancock’s, and dessert parlour, Kaspa’s, will add further appeal to the 150,000 sq ft scheme and take it to 86 per cent let.
The town’s new retail and leisure development, owned by Legal & General Investment Management Real Assets (LGIM RA), is the result of a project investment of £53.25 million.
Taking 4,500 sq ft and 2,400 sq ft units respectively, Hancock’s American Kitchen & Bar will offer traditional dishes from the US southern states, while visitors to Kaspa’s will enjoy the world’s favourite hot and cold desserts under one roof.
Hancock’s and Kaspa’s join existing casual dining operators Nando’s and Costa Coffee, as well as the recently-opened Burger King. The diverse leisure offer includes a six-screen Cineworld and 24- hours-a-day Anytime Fitness gym, as well as a 108-bed Travelodge and a 445 space car park.
St James is also home to top retail brands including anchor stores Next and M&S Foodhall, plus Trespass, Superdrug, The Entertainer, Shoe Zone, The Food Warehouse by Iceland and Card Factory.
