Construction work on the highly anticipated Northern Tower Retail Park in Retford has commenced with Castlehouse Construction appointed on the multi-million-pound flagship Lidl.

Situated just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, the Northern Tower development will enhance the retail choice and shopping experience available in the local area.

Part of a long-term relationship with the retailer, this is the 22nd store constructed by Castlehouse Construction on behalf of Lidl.

Phil Dewell, Construction Director, Castlehouse Construction commented: “We are progressing well with the new build Lidl, despite challenging conditions since lockdown and are on track to complete the scheme at the end of the year.  We are delighted to work with Strawsons Property to deliver another high-quality store for Lidl, marking another milestone in the supermarket’s ambitious expansion plans.”

Adam Jones of Strawsons Property commented: “Lidl is a real coup for the Northern Tower Retail Park, and we are delighted that building work has been able to progress at pace despite the complications caused by Coronavirus.

“It is great to see our first tenant’s new, purpose-built flagship store taking shape in what is a key part of the transformation from dilapidated Victorian site into a vibrant part of the local community.
