Retail Showcase


Historically, we have excelled in acquiring sites in need of demolition and regeneration, creating something new and of great value for the future. Our Lidl retail development is a prime example.

The Eureka picture house on Hessle Road in Hull was built in the 1912 and enlarged in the 1920s. It gradually fell into decline, due to the advent of television and by the time it came about as a marketable opportunity, it was beyond repair. We saw great potential for a retail site and, upon acquisition, we demolished the building and acquired more land.

The development became Hull’s latest Lidl food retail supermarket, offering shoppers even more affordable options to go alongside the adjacent Asda Superstore.
