£3.7m Bristol & West arcade sale
January 03, 2006
Small business in the Bristol & West Arcade have been given a new lease of life after the centre was bought by Reading-based Cityscene Properties.
The arcade contains 13 shops and office accommodation and has been sold by Prudential for £3.75million.
Cityscene Properties plans to keep the 1950s-style arcade on Friar Street as a haven for small businesses but has not ruled out some changes.
Director Robert Whiting said: "We are not planning to change the arcade considerably. There will still be a place for colourful shops."
