The Grafton The Grafton, Cambridge, CB1 1PS
500,000 sq ft
The property is located to the south east of the historic core, on the corner of Burleigh Street and Fitzroy Street in the heart of an area known locally as The Kite.
The property provides just under 500,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space. The centre, together with Fitzroy and Burleigh Street, create their own retail pitch, which is conveniently accessed via car or public transport and benefits from the presence of Primark. The Centre further benefits from its proximity to Anglia Ruskin University, which has recently benefited from a £35 million refurbishment which has now been completed and has re-opened in September 2011.
The centre was originally built in 1983 but was refurbished and extended in both 1995 and 2004. The covered centre is principally arranged over one floor with a food court positioned at first floor. There is one main mall running in a west to east direction. There is also a small horse-shoe shaped mall at the west end of the scheme, known as Eden Hall, which houses a number of specialist retailers.
The centre is anchored by Debenhams located near the centreof the scheme and BHS located at the eastern end. Other major retailers include Next, H&M, New Look, Boots and Topshop. There is also an 8 screen multiplex Vue cinema, which was developed as part of the extension in 1995, and a food court on the first floor, with retailers including Bella Italia, Café Lavazza and Burger King.
The main entrance to the scheme is from Fitzroy Street, which is a busy pedestrianised street that provides the main thoroughfare between the city centre retail area and The Grafton. There are also additional entrances from Burleigh Street (opposite Primark), Napier Street, Wellington Street and East Road.
