Legal & General has reached agreement with Poole Borough Council to restructure the headlease of The Dolphin Centre, Dorset’s largest covered shopping destination. Plans have been unveiled for a £26 million facelift, including new dining and retail choices. New Look is extending and upgrading its store and independent German shoe retailer, Deichmann is a new name to the centre.
Significant improvements are to be made by LGIM Real Assets (Legal & General), owners of the centre since 2013, to the internal malls and entrances of the centre, as well as to the public realm and facades of Falkland Square and Kingland Crescent, both of which are open air.
Coverdale Barclay has been appointed to manage all aspects of refurbishment-related industry communications and stakeholder engagement for the 18-month improvement programme to The Dolphin Centre.
