The Thistles Shopping Centre
Acquired in December 2020 in a joint venture with AXA Investment Managers.
The Thistles dominates Stirling city centre, providing over 500,000 sq ft of retail space over a single level. With a total of 90 units, the scheme benefits from several major anchors including M&S, Primark, Boots, Next, Superdrug, River Island and JD Sports.
The Centre is the primary focus for retailing in the town centre and attracts approximately 6 million shoppers annually.
Several new asset management initiatives are being progressed, with the current emphasis on the repurposing of the former Debenhams department store and the introduction of alternative uses. Feasibility studies and active discussions are in hand and new uses could include student accommodation, a food hall and various leisure uses.
The scheme has parking provision for 1,300 vehicles.
