A NEW retail and lifestyle hub at the expanding Lakeside North Harbour Business Park will be built by Portsmouth firm Warings.

Two units, totalling 3,000sq ft, have already been pre-let to The Southern Co-operative and will be used for a shop and florist.

A further three of the planned seven units are under offer, to a dry cleaning business, hairdresser and cafe.

Highcross awarded Warings the £3m construction contract for the new retail hub and the recently-announced day nursery.

The firm has already completed the infrastructure phase of the project, which included the installation of a sewerage tank and electricity cables.

The retail scheme will include two pavilions, which will be linked to the 1000 Lakeside building by a fabric canopy.

The project is due to be completed by early 2013.

Philippe Jouy, managing director of Warings said: ‘It is a real pleasure to be working on such an important site again, with a project that promises to really add to its attraction and the quality of the facilities there.’
