Leading retail property agent Harper Dennis Hobbs has been appointed by French commercial developer Vicity as retained property agents for the €140 m Lillenium Shopping Centre in Lille, in the north of France.

The new three-storey shopping centre, which is currently under development and due to open in November 2014, is five minutes from Lille city centre and will comprise 100 stores as well as a three star hotel and offices. Lillenium will be located in the heart of an ambitious urban plan.

Lillenium, designed by the famous French architect Rudy Ricciotti, will cover 57,000 sq m in total including 26,000 sq m of retail space, 2,100 sq m of restaurant space and an 450 sq m food area, a 10,000 sq m hypermarket prelet to E.Leclerc. It will also include a 4,800 sq m office complex, 900 capacity three storey underground car park and a 120 room Holiday Inn.

Retailers including H&M, New Yorker, C&A, Verywear and Mango have already expressed an interest in the scheme, which has a customer catchment of 3.5 million within a 100km radius.

Harper Dennis Hobbs director Richard Willcox, says: “This is a fantastic new opportunity for retailers to be part of a great new centre in northern France with an impressive catchment that includes the Pas De Calais and Picardy regions and is also accessible to shoppers from Belgium too.”
