The Centre Court Shopping Centre is to be renamed as the Wimbledon Quarter with the completion of works currently ongoing.
The rebranding is an attempt to reposition the location as a neighbourhood hub as opposed to just a retail venue with new shopping, hospitality, training and offices spaces opening.
Owners Romulus started the project to renovate the centre back in 2021 and the new layout intends to provide community spaces that encourage social interactions, events and gatherings. These spaces include the new Courtyard set under a retractable roof offering a place to stop, to sit and to meet. Connections with the Broadway and residents are set to improve with the introduction of a new main entrance on Queens Road.
New tenants at the centre include Third Space, Boardroom Climbing, The Golf Groove, Huddle and the recently announced additions of Mildreds and Picnic and Play, with more to come as the centre continues to evolve.
Environmental initiatives include energy-eﬃcient lighting, recycling and composting programs, natural ventilation, removal of gas boilers and even a roof-top farm.
"We are thrilled to unveil the Wimbledon Quarter. We believe that reinvention reﬂects the opening up of an enclosed Shopping Mall to become part of the town centre. The new brand represents our commitment to creating a space that reflects Wimbledon, embracing the local community and providing opportunities for everyone to connect, engage, and thrive," said Alexander Woolf, Romulus COO.
The works at the Wimbledon Quarter will complete in late Autumn.
