Land Securities puts faith in Leeds' Trinity
Property empire Land Securities is betting that the north's flagging economy will soon return to health as it launches a £350m shopping centre in Leeds.
On Thursday, Trinity will be the first major mall to open its doors to shoppers – hopefully with bulging wallets – since September 2011 and the Westfield centre at Stratford, next to London's Olympic Park.
Trinity has been delayed for three years due to the dire economic conditions, but Land Securities has managed to fill this huge centre with 100 retailers, including Marks & Spencer, Next and Primark, which will employ up to 3,000 people and be home to some 512,000 clothes hangers. Land Securities' attention on the area is such that it is looking to expand its White Rose centre to the south of Leeds.
