The roof looks cool with snow on. It gives you an idea of how much glazing has been installed.

Was really bright earlier, but now the cloud has cleared it's not so bright.

The snow on the top of the dome looks incredible, and unusual! I wonder how much weight of snow it's supporting.

Noticed today that there are now concessions (albiet rather small ones) within BHS for Burton, Dorothy Perkins and Evans. Also Topshop / Topman on Briggate has now closed (for the Trinity Leeds works) with Im guessing the standalone temporary Topshop at the former Burton / Dorothy Perkins on the corner of Headrow and Briggate and the temporary Topman at the former Evans on Lands Lane now has signage up and shelves stocked which will presumably mean both will be opening tomorrow if not the next few days id have thought.

Both the new temporary Topman and Topshop units are now open.

Also noticed a licensing application outside the former Squares pub / Trinity Square building next door to Trinity Leeds has revealed that Sainsburys are interested in the unit. A bit meh considering the proximity to existing Sainsburys and M&S in Leeds railway station although at least a unit occupied by someone. I wonder if Sainsburys are to take on the whole of the former Squares site? Will office / residential be going in above the shop units at Trinity Square?

Surely the development of Trinity Leeds would potentially lead to other new retailers opening on Boar Lane either through the reconfiguration of existing buildings to house larger retailers or through retailers taking on vacant units such as the remaining part of the former Multiyork which Up & Running have partially taken on, Bar Censsa and a former bakers whose name escapes me and had rather an unattractive shop sign put up.

Hmm, I would have hoped this building should have been able to secure a beter tenant than Sainsburys, but then I suppose it'd be a big profit-spinner for Sainsbury's. EAT would do well here.

I wonder if Whole Foods or Booths are looking at Leeds at the moment?

Well so far there is only one unit under offer at Trinity Square, which is Unit D which is 2,200 sq ft, so that is probably the unit for Sainsbury's Local.

Retail space is due to be spread over ground and first floors for most of the units except for Unit D.

The units are due to be ready for Spring, so it should not be long before Sainsbury's Local opens.

A friend of mine that works in Topshop said that they are due to move into the new Topshop/Topman in October.

Mamas & Papas has 62 UK stores, including six in Yorkshire. It is also in talks to open a store in the new Trinity Leeds shopping centre, due to open next year.

Tucked away in a corner of West Yorkshire, lies one of the region’s biggest retail success stories.
Quote:
The company designs and develops products for the nursery market, including prams, car seats, nursery furniture, toys and clothes. It has attracted a number of celebrity customers including Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Its Huddersfield head office is a hive of creativity and an explosion of colour. Everything is done from here: from a designer picking up a pen through to quality control. With 500 staff in the head office alone, it’s a vast operation which continues to expand but it still retains its family values.

We tried it and it's full of junk. I agree it is expensive. Still it's a good addition to Leeds and it's a local company so that's good too.
