Pure Gym spins into Ocean Terminal.

Quote:
Budget gym operator Pure Gym has secured its latest outlet in Edinburgh’s Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre, as it continues to make inroads into the Scottish and UK fitness club markets.

The company has taken a 15 year lease on 15,750 square foot of space from landlord Forth Ports in Edinburgh’s flagship shopping centre. The Ocean Terminal site is the firm’s fourth In Scotland, following openings in Edinburgh’s Quartermile, Bath Street in Glasgow and an imminent opening at Aberdeen’s City Wharf.

In locating at Ocean Terminal, the company is aiming to tap into a future upturn in the local residential market as the redevelopment of Edinburgh’s waterfront progresses.

A recent report on the low-cost gym sector by Oxygen Consulting suggests that the UK could have up to 275 low-cost clubs by the end of this year, representing approximately 8% of all UK private clubs.

Established in 2009, Pure Gym now has 14 clubs across the UK and is aiming to double in size over the next 12 months.

Simon Bashford, Senior Surveyor in the Retail team at Jones Lang LaSalle said: “Pure Gym is exercising first mover advantage within the low cost leisure sector in Scotland and the UK. This latest deal is further proof of the company’s ambitious expansion plans within Scotland, providing residents with a quality affordable health and fitness offering at a time of ongoing economic uncertainty.

“It’s also a great acquisition for Ocean Terminal, further diversifying the centre’s tenant mix and providing customers and nearby residents with additional leisure and fitness services.”

Jones Lang LaSalle acted for Pure Gym and SGM Ewan Mackay acted for Forth Ports.
It opened on the 28th!

Renovation Moves Ahead at Possible Scotland Store

May 3, 2011

Despite local skepticism that the heritage building at the corner of Princes and West Register Streets in Edinburgh (Scotland) is the perfect location for an Apple retail store, documents submitted to the city’s Planning and Building Standards department last month seem to provide proof the project is proceeding. The collection of renderings, architectural drawings, photographs and renovation proposals do not mention Apple at all. However, the style, level of detail and financial commitment outlined in the documents matches previous applications by Apple to renovate an historical building, retaining its heritage but making a modern Apple mark on the structure. The building owner previously proposed upgrading the building for ground and first-floor retail, and a hotel on the upper floors. The new plans slightly revise some of those proposals, including substituting some materials and replacing a metal pillar with stone. The interior of the building is not considered historically significant, and so no drawings were submitted for approval. At some point Apple must apply for signage approval, which would definitely identify the retail space.

On the £850m St James' Quarter development proposal ... Their official website states a timeline involving "submission of 'reserved matters' application" in Spring 2011 with a decision to be made in the autumn. Anyone know if this has happened or imminent?

I realise this project will not yet have funding, but it would be a sign of confidence if Henderson Global were proceeding with the planning stages. Given an estimated retail completion of 2016 I would like to think some investors would be keen to deliver this project in time to benefit from a full economic recovery.

YAY that has made my week! I have often wondered you can't get them in Scotland. but where on earth is that site? I've never heard of it surely it doesnt make any sense. I would've thought a pop up in Harvey Nichols or somewhere would make more sense?

I think the key bit is this:

Quote:
The application states that the Krispy Kreme unit is proposed to be part used as a manufacturing facility for doughnuts for more Edinburgh stores.
Expect several city centre stores, and presumably this facility could produce for other stores across the central belt.

Nope don't know where you heard that? Buchanan Galleries have had a plan to extend for years now, and, I'm pretty sure, the planning application will get sent soon, but if that goes ahead Marks and Spencers will be opening a four floor store, but closing their suchiehall street branch as a consequence...

As for selfridges if they were ever to develop, I would imagine they would stick to trongate, as they still own the sight, but are using it as a carpark for the time being!

Gyle shopping centre expansion planned.

Quote:
Halliday Fraser Munro has submitted plans for an extension of Edinburgh’s Gyle shopping centre to planners.

It will see creation of a new retail unit set to be occupied by Primark – a vote of confidence by the budget retailer in the city before its 3DReid designed flagship has even opened.

The glass fronted unit would accommodate two floors of retail space spanning 4,911sq/m of space at the front of the existing centre.

Halliday Fraser Munro said of the development: “The main feature of the new block will be the multi clad wall. The top line of this feature wall will take its cue, in terms of height from the W.M. Morrison’s and Marks and Spencer’s anchor stores.

“Above this line the construction will be set back on a recessed plane. The opaque glass and flat ‘floating’ roof will offer a more lightweight structure to be read as a secondary structural element.”

This forms part of longer term plans to migrate the centre’s focus west toward the site of a proposed tram stop and to erect a living “green” wall in the form of a trellis system attached to the existing wall planted with a variety of evergreen climbers.

Another new one for Edinburgh - no date though.
Quote:
Mango on menu for Princes Street

SPANISH clothing chain Mango is the latest retailer to set its sights on Princes Street.
The prime location would be just the third Mango store in Scotland, with the others in Glasgow and Dundee.

The Capital is one of 550 sites around the globe where the chain, whose ranges have been modelled by Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson, wants to open a new store. Mango has submitted plans to the city council to move into a store at 88 Princes Street, a site currently occupied by JJB Sports.

The news has been hailed as a welcome boost to the fortunes of the Capital's main shopping street, which has suffered in recent years. Experts say that along with big names such as Primark, which is due to open next year, Mango will help reverse Princes Street's recent downturn...
