From site assembly to construction

Robertson Property undertook the development from site assembly and planning to project delivery on behalf of The Robertson Group.

The scheme was constructed by Robertson Northern and the owners, who retained Robertson Property to provide comprehensive property management services post completion.

The retail units vary in size from 466 sq m (5,017 sq ft) up to 1,887 sq m (20,315 sq ft). All are double height to allow the possible installation of mezzanine floors. Generous rear service yards that are fully segregated from public areas are included. The units offer a range of options to suit different retailer requirements.

The units are arranged in two parades and feature attractive modern frontages and generous signage zones. Full-height feature canopy projections, which are illuminated at night, are an additional architecturally pleasing feature forming a covered walkway to protect customers from the elements as they move around the development.

The site includes 373 car parking spaces including 22 disabled and 15 parent and child spaces, within a landscaped setting, make access and parking easy for customers.

Keeping retail spend within the local economy

Elgin Retail Park has attracted national retailers which otherwise would not have had the opportunity to locate in Elgin.

Research indicated that approximately £90 million per annum of retail spend was lost to Inverness and Aberdeen. Elgin Retail Park has contributed to stemming that flow to the benefit of the local economy.
