Workman’s Retail & Leisure team has been appointed by Brookfield as the property manager. This appointment was for a retail park portfolio of 9 major retail assets.

The retail park portfolio consists of various locations. Included were Central Retail Park in Falkirk, Cleveland Retail Park in Middlesbrough, Cyfarthfa Retail Park in Merthyr Tydfil and Rugby’s Elliott’s Field Shopping Park, amongst others.
