Orchard Street Investment Management has announced the first new tenants to take up units in the Westhill shopping centre development.

An announcement revealing the two first tenants was made on October 15.

Rapidly expanding retailer, Home Bargains, will be occupying 10,000sq ft having signed a 15-year lease on a unit in the new Donside centre.

The Town and Country Veterinary Group will be relocating from its existing practice in the shopping centre to a new 826 sq ft unit having agreed the same lease term.

This Home Bargains outlet at Westhill will add to its North-east presence, with existing stores in Inverurie and Aberdeen as well as in Peterhead and Elgin.

Alongside the new development, the customer car park will be reconfigured and improvements made to the access along Westhill Drive. Initial site preparation work commenced on September 15 and completion of the extension is expected in spring 2015.

Owing to the popularity of the development, Orchard Street has already received interest from prospective occupiers for the remaining 4,375 sq ft of space and expects to announce further lettings in the near future.
