21 May 19

The final unit at the Rosehill development on Felixstowe Road, Ipswich, has been let to the British Heart Foundation.

The popular Rosehill neighbourhood shopping centre has now been fully let following the completion of the extended development last year and now features a new look Aldi, Energie Fitness gym, Poundstretcher, Greggs and refurbished East of England Co-op Daily Foodstore.

The new 6200 sq ft store opened its doors in May and features a wide variety of good quality pre-owned furniture and home appliances; from sofas and beds to TVs and dishwashers. Proceeds from the store help to fund innovative life-saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.

Nick Denny, Joint Chief Executive at East of England Co-op, owners of the Rosehill Retail Centre, said: “We are very pleased to welcome the British Heart Foundation, completing the offering at Rosehill which now provides a range of services for the local community.

We strive to work with other local businesses on our property developments and would like to thank Fenn Wright and Barnes Construction for helping to bring the project to fruition.”

Bob Steward, Joint Managing Director at Barnes Construction commented: “One of the first contracts secured by Barnes when it started trading in 1978, was to build the garden centre at the back of the Co-op department store in Carr Street. The Rosehill Retail Centre continues to build and strengthen our 40-year relationship.”

Alistair Mitchell, Partner at Fenn Wright, said: “The addition of the British Heart Foundation store to Rosehill is fantastic news. The scheme has continued to go from strength to strength and we are delighted to have worked with East of England Co-op to bring this thriving shopping centre to fruition.

“Despite challenges in the retail sector Rosehill is proof that with the right approach there is the opportunity to deliver a successful development.”
