The Challenge:

Dragon Lane in Durham is an 58,000 sq ft bulky goods retail development, set close to a Tesco store, in the heart of a residential area.

This multi million pound investment regenerates a current brownfield site, creating new jobs for local people.

The Solution:

Kier Property has transformed this major redevelopment site by bringing forward an exciting bulky goods retail environment.

Since the project started on site in August 2018, the team worked collaboratively to deliver many progressive steps ranging from positive engagement with its supply chain and external partners to engaging with the local Universities to identify areas of need such as apprenticeships, employment initiatives and training new and existing staff.

The scheme completed in 2019 and created many new jobs for the local area.

The Impact:

The development was acquired by London Metric via a forward funding contract with Kier. It is pre-let to Lidl and The Range for 20 years.
