The new development, Gardiner Place (former Market Place Mews) is complete after 2 years and the walkway is now open between Market Place and King’s Road car park.
The new mixed-use retail and apartments development has 14 luxury 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 9 retails units.
Majestic Wines are the first retailer to open in the development and opened their doors this morning.
Ilan Goldman, director at Catalyst Capital, the developer behind the scheme said, “We are delighted to announce completion at Gardiner Place, which is a fantastic milestone not only for the team involved but for the wider Henley town. The work has been completed in the face of Covid-19; and will open-up the heart of the town centre. We’re looking forward to Majestic Wines opening their doors and are also in discussions with a number of further occupiers for the retail and leisure space who are looking to take occupation in 2021. The luxury two- and three-bedroom apartments are also proving popular with a number already reserved; providing attractive homes to both young professionals and down-sizers alike.”
The opening of Majestic Wines will add to the already strong line-up at Gardiner Place including Harrods first new concept H Café and Crockers restaurant and hotel.
Majestic Wines CEO, John Colley said, “Henley is a town we have been hoping to enter for a number of years, so finding the right location for our new store was vital. We know we already have a number of customers in the area, and our new team are eager to get started and help residents discover some fantastic new wines, beers and spirits – as well as taking advantage of our free tasting counter, delivery services and expert advice.
This is our first Majestic store to open in a new location for five years and we couldn’t be more excited for our arrival in this vibrant, beautiful town. Particularly as (fingers crossed) we’ll be opening our doors just in time for Christmas with a wave of fantastic deals and a bespoke range. I’m sure, like all of us, the residents of Henley will be in need of a fantastic bottle or two this year more so than ever.”
