Leicester’s revamped Silver Arcade 'will help boost trade in area'
The developers behind the £3 million renovation of Leicester’s Silver Arcade are confident it will help boost trade in the area.
The Victorian shopping arcade, which will keep many of the grade-II listed building’s original features, will be open in time for Christmas and aims to encourage shoppers back to the area.
Caroline Simpson-Watkinson, director of Harborough London, the agent to the owner, said: “It will be a gateway into the Lanes and bring shoppers to this part of town – it’ll give a real boost to the area.”
She said the phone had been ringing off the hook with people asking for information about renting units.
