New designer outlet village planned

Plans for a new designer village shopping centre near Cheltenham have been unveiled. The centre will provide 90 stores, restaurants and cafes close to Junction 9 of the M5.

European outlet centre company ROS Retail Outlet Shopping is to manage a 25,549 sq m 27,500 sq ft) centre that will open in two phases. Construction is due to start in autumn 2020, in what will be the company’s first UK venture.

Roberts Limbrick Architects has designed the centre, while developer Robert Hitchins is working with ROS to create the new attraction.

Thomas Reichenauer, co-founder and managing director of ROS Retail Outlet Shopping, says: “With our specialism in designer outlets across Europe, and our in-depth knowledge of different markets, we see tremendous potential for the UK retail sector. This is especially true for outlet shopping which has been bucking trends in the UK for several years generating significant interest amongst top brands and customers in the concept. Having been founded in 2011, we’re a young company but with a team that brings experience, expertise and track-record built up over many years.”

 “Designer Outlet Cotswolds will be an eye-catching development reflecting the architecture and materials of the historic towns and villages of the Cotswolds. We’ll be creating a state-of-the-art retail destination with contemporary and adaptable units suited to the needs of modern shopping and dining. With a comfortable and welcoming environment, this will be a memorable addition to a day-out in the Cotswolds. We’re very excited about the development plans and look forward to completing the scheme and welcoming customers from near and far,” adds Robert Hitchins property & development director Simon Tothill.
