Hi all,
Does anyone know what is going into the commercial units under the apartments at Sixty8 the Marina?

    I heard that Tesco and Sainsbury were bidding against each other to have a 'metro' unit. But this will only be a 3rd of the units max due to planning. Also, no parking for a large foodstore on site.

    Finbally, also heard these units will not go live until Nov 2013, hench the blue boards going up in place of the hordings.

    Also ment to add, it wont be Morrisons because the site won't fit its business model, unless they are about to go 'express' or 'metro' in formats.

    Not sure, might be tied in with the opening of the the other building? But I'm sure theres enough demand for these units to open up now.

    Morrisons have put an Alcohol licence application in for Unit 1 at Sixty8 the marina, I don't see why they would do that if they weren't intending on opening a site there.

    Mat, your right and just spoke to CN for the details.

    It's a Morrisons local, called M Local, so not your brash supermarket

    It's a new format, only 12 in the country. Unit 1 is where the show homes are currently sited.

    Thats interesting, looks like a good addition. Did CN drop any clues to who the other units might go to? I'm hoping for a decent restuarant and a cafe bar :D

    I did ask the question, They said they expect so with a smile, but no detail offered.

    I expect so, otherwise I will sue them for mis selling a 'cosmopolitan' marina life style with vibrant bars and restaurants. This is clearly stated in the sales material they have been throwing around!

    Still, the m local looks quite clean, not much Morrison yellow in sight. http://tinyurl.com/9wfxpfj

    Quite agree with the above, why the delay - bar and restaurant and convenience store needed NOW not at the end of the year

    I would have loved to set up a small business there but I can imagine the rents and rates will send small business out of the running! I didn't enquire but if high streets are anything to go by then impossible to sustain. That's why the big players will undoubtably go there.

    Good point Keigh - and it would be so much more interesting NOT to just have the same old chains.

    Just Morrison's, what about the rest of the units. Lets have a nice smart café with deli. Something I would maybe like to setup with a partner?

    I have heard that the middle unit will be a private members club and the end unit will be an upmarket fish restraurant?
