Names of the first tenants taking space in the multi-million pound Cornhill Quarter scheme have been announced.

The eccentric Cosy Club restaurant, innovative Danish home and general store, Flying Tiger Copenhagen and men’s formal wear fashion brand, Moss Bros. are set to open in the Corn Exchange building in The Cornhill Quarter from summer 2017. 

These first three retailers bring a range of different offers to the area, from casual dining and drinking to stylish yet affordable homeware products and a versatile range of menswear. 

The Cornhill Quarter scheme will rejuvenate the area around Sincil Street, City Square and the Cornhill through a sensitive combination of repair, refurbishment, extension and new development. 

Work has already started on the £12m first phase of the scheme. This includes the Grade II listed Corn Exchange building - which will be home to five new brands once complete – and will also see investment in 30a to 35 Sincil Street.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Chief Executive Ursula Lidbetter said: “These new national and international brands set the scene for this exciting redevelopment, which will bring even more life, vibrancy and prosperity to Lincoln city centre. 

“As well as delivering a new offer to those living and working in the city, the brands will encourage more people to come and experience our thriving city centre, contributing to the local economy.” 

Work has also begun on the new transport hub, which will include a bus interchange, taxis and cycle facilities, and a 1,000 space multi-storey car park. 

Lincolnshire Co-op is keen to drive the regeneration of the area and create employment benefits for local people. Local firms have been appointed to work on the project including building contractors Lindum Construction and agents Banks Long & Co. 

Managing Director for Banks Long & Co Tim Bradford added: “As a local firm, we understand the different retail and restaurant brands that local people in Lincoln want to see. These first lettings demonstrate the interest we are already seeing from quality brands that recognise the benefits the redevelopment will bring to the area. These new names will not only add to Lincoln’s existing offer but help to put the city on the retail map.”
