Northampton is one of England’s fastest growing towns and is the strategic location for many national organisations as their central hub for business. Northampton has excellent rail and road communications, with hourly train services to London and road links to the M1 at Junctions 15, 15a & 16 and additionally to the A14 in the North. Northampton currently has an Enterprise Zone status which aims to support both new and expanding businesses by offering incentives.
There is a range of redevelopment activity within Northampton including the following:
• Multi-million pound re-development of the existing Railway Station
• New £25m development of student accommodation for the university in the main town centre
• New £7m bus station development on Northampton’s former Fishmarket
• Proposals for the expansion of the Grovesenor Centre onto the current bus station site (Greyfriars)
• New Cinema adjoining the Royal & Derngate Theatre
• Advanced proposals for the relocation of the University of Northampton to a centrally accessible site
The St Peters Way Shopping Centre, of which this accommodation forms part, is situated in a highly prominent position adjacent to the inner ring road and provides one of the town's premier gateways into the Town Centre. The scheme has been well let to large space retailers that include Argos Superstore, Peacocks, Iceland, Home Bargains and others including Wetherspoons and PureGym. The centre further benefits by having 531 car parking spaces which provides for a strong pedestrian flow between the scheme through St Peters Walk to which the accommodation has direct access and to the other prime shops within the town via Gold Street. Traders in St Peter's Walk include Pulse, Fashion Stop, Shine Hairdressing, Singh & Smile, and Hatton Goldsmiths. Traders in Gold Street include Wilkinson’s, 99p Stores, Pound Stretcher, and a range of smaller shops. The new nearby leisure complex of Sol Central is a popular visitor attraction.
The premises comprise a ground floor shop unit within a retail arcade, with a large glazed shop frontage, internal W.C facilities and a partitioned room to the rear for storage.
