Gilbert Evans has secured a 22,500 sq ft letting to Wilkinson on the first floor in Reading’s Broad Street Mall. Gilbert Evans’ success in the Wilkinson letting – due to open 24 November 2010 –  is part of their ongoing service to provide agency and asset management advice in relation to the 80 retail units within the mall.

Gilbert Evans’ continued efforts have benefited the landlord, who had lost tenants due to the economic climate. There are now only 4 available units. Gilbert Evans’ increasing involvement in the shopping centre sector throughout the UK is making them an agency team worth talking to.

The 365,000 sq ft Broad Street Mall dominates Reading’s value retail offer, with tenants including Footlocker, TK Maxx, New Look, Peacocks, Argos, Superdrug, NHS PCT, 99p Store, Poundland, Modelzone and F Hinds. The centre boasts an average footfall in excess of 175,000 shoppers per week.
