Blackwater Retail Park the largest retail development seen in this part of Essex, the estuary town will see some new names in town including Next, Aldi, Sports Direct and Costa Coffee.
Groundwork has now begun on the new 75,000 sq/ft. multi-million-pound retail park that will include eight shopping units. The development is built on a former industrial brownfield site and is due to finish in August 2018.
The scheme will eventually have a hotel as part of the development to drive more tourism to the Maldon area. Once complete, the Retail Park and hotel will employ circa 200 staff.
As a local-based practice, AWA are delighted to be involved in this development.
