Starbucks commits to multi-million pound regeneration of Grimsby ‘landmark’ site
Plans for the transformation of a ‘landmark’ site in Grimsby into a retail and leisure destination have been unveiled.
Global coffee house Starbucks has been named as the first operator to commit to the regeneration of the former Ramsdens Superstore site.
Grimsby-based Ramsden Group has submitted plans to North East Lincolnshire Council for a Starbucks drive-thru and eat-in cafe, the first project of the transformation of the vacant site into a new retail and leisure hub.
Comprising 1,800 sq ft, the single-storey Starbucks café with 30 parking spaces on the corner of Cleethorpe Road and Park Street.
Securing Starbucks is expected to be a catalyst for further investment in the development, which is expected to create around 200 jobs.
Nick Ramsden, managing director of Ramsden Group, commented: “We’re excited to announce Starbucks as the first occupier and to submit plans that will pave the way for the delivery of the scheme as a whole.
“The Starbucks investment will enable this key regeneration project to get under way, bring new life to a derelict site and deliver major improvements to the street scene.
“This will be the first stage in a major, private sector-led development that will transform the local area and bring significant investment, new businesses and jobs to Grimsby.”
