BCSC tours Friars Walk

Members of BCSC were treated to a study tour of Queensberry Real Estate’s Friars Walk in Newport last month.

The new 390,000 sq ft retail and leisure destination will connect a disjointed part of the cityscape between the River Usk and Newport’s existing retail core. The scheme includes  a 90,000 sq ft  Debenhams department store, a new 8-screen Cineworld multiplex cinema, 37 retail units, four kiosks and 11 restaurants. There will also be a new 350-space car park and bus interchange.

Friars Walk is being delivered within a tight construction timetable and is due to open in autumn 2015.
