German firm wants to build 3,000 homes alongside new stores
German grocer Lidl’s entry into construction shows mixed-use schemes are the future of developments in the UK, according to industry analysts.
Lidl announced this week that it plans to build more than 3,000 homes and a primary school around London in the space of just three years.
The discount grocer has already built 335 homes, with a further 476 in the pipeline, as it increasingly pursues mixed-use developments in order to get consent for shops in areas with struggling pre-existing retailers.
