The Rows, Chester

This retail development forms part of the famous ‘Rows’ in Chester. Located close to The Cross and just down the road from the famous Eastgate Clock and Grosvenor Hotel this property sits in a pivotal location in Chester. As the big name brands in eating and drinking have moved to the edges of the city centre and shopping habits have changed ‘The Rows’ have become a magnet for independent restaurants and retailers.

We have been involved with the project for several years and during that time prepared surveys and feasibility studies to ascertain the viability of various reconfigured units to meet the needs of incoming tenants. More recently we surveyed and prepared planning drawings for one of the kiosks facing Eastgate Street. As a result of various interventions ‘The Rows’ are once again busy and vibrant and attracting new retailers and new customers. This stands as a great example of how retail developments can adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing environment.
