St Stephens Retail Shopping Centre in Hull have ordered Tagevac to be installed throughout the Centre as an integral part of their revised Emergency Planning. The Centre opened on 20 September 2007 and today it attracts more than 10 million visitors a year.
The shopping centre is a 40-acre (160,000 m2) brownfield site development in the city centre of Kingston upon Hull, England. It cost £200 million to build and was a key development in the resurgence of Hull as the centre of East Yorkshire culture and shopping. It is home to 12.8 acres (52,000 m2) of retail and leisure space and incorporates retail outlets, cafés, bars, fitness club, restaurants, a cinema and an award-winning multi-storey car park.
St Stephen’s is owned by British Land which owns and manages a portfolio of commercial property worth £15.8 billion, of which their share is £10.3 billion. British Land’s portfolio is focused primarily on high quality retail locations and central London offices, believing that these well-located properties are the ones best placed to benefit from customer demand and rental growth. They also have expertise in residential and leisure property and also own properties directly, as well as through investment funds and joint ventures.
