Cathedral Plaza, whose existing tenants include H & M, Next, Arcadia, Monsoon and White Stuff, generates a current rental income of £2.3million pa.

We are already advanced with plans for a refurbishment of part of Cathedral Plaza to provide further modern restaurant and retail units.”

Salmon is expected to submit a planning application later this year.

Cathedral Plaza includes 4/23 High Street, 4/18 Pump Street and 1/10A College Street, located within the pedestrian section of the High Street, opposite Worcester Cathedral.
