Retail plan imminent

Construction work of £150m Victoria Gate retail development in Leeds commences in the coming weeks.

The project will bring the first John Lewis department store to the city alongside other big name retailers.

The scheme will consist of a 21,000 sq m John Lewis store and a retail arcade with up to 30 stores, restaurants and cafes. The build, which is due to be finished in 2016, will also include a casino and a multi-storey car park.
