    I keep hearing talk of a major retailer moving in to the mad house unit . Latest is they are close to a deal . Have you heard anything .

  2. Alex says:

    Any news on a new store in the madhouse location , or any news on a redevelopment of highfriars/sidgate.

  3. Alex says:

    Had a walk down high friars and sidgate and noticed closing down posters on warren james , rebel rebel and west coast . I hear others are moving too.

  4. Alex says:

    Green market now closed . Urban outfitters seem to be taking this site , but closing off from Eldon square mall . Any news on the new retailer for the mad house site ?

  5. Alex says:

    Essential to find major retailer to locate in the Mad House site . This mall is suffering badly and seems only to attract charity operations and short term special lets .

      Couldn’t agree more Alex! And that’s obviously been pushed back too, as the Green Market was still there and (barely) trading when I last went by a couple of weeks ago.

      I think redevelopment of that entire end of Eldon Square may be the best option, perhaps creating large, full-length units with access from both Blackett Street and Nelson Street. The whole section is too skinny for an enclosed mall to be a very effective use of space.
