Originally opened in 1993 the scheme provided the prime fashion shopping mall in the city. The subsequent opening of a competing fashion focused shopping centre and the fundamental changes in the retail landscape, however, meant that the strength of Castle Quarter was increasingly diminished and its relevance unclear.
RivingtonHark identified the opportunity to reposition Castle Quarter to provide the leading lifestyle and social destination in Norwich and has overseen the successful execution of the business plan to achieve this.
By creating the right environment for leisure occupiers through targeted capital expenditure on rebranding, mall refurbishment and unit reconfiguration we have been able to attract some fantastic operators and Castle Quarter is now home to an enviable leisure mix which is underpinned by Vue cinema.
