Wagamama Signs Up For Riverside North

 Award winning restaurant Wagamama is set to join a host of high quality restaurants signing up for a space in Bedford’s  exciting new Riverside North development.

The development is proving so popular that most of the tenancies on the site have already been signed up to a string of major entertainment, hotel and restaurant operators. The site is bringing major regeneration to Bedford town centre, providing a vibrant new destination for residents and visitors to the town.

Wagamama will bring its aromatic mix of traditional Japanese ramen bars and asian flavours to the development which is set to open in late 2016. Alongside Wagamama agreements have already been formally exchanged with Vue Entertainment Limited for a state-of-the-art 7 screen cinema and with Premier Inn for a 100 bedroom hotel. Other restaurants signed up include the Gondola Group for a Zizzi, Prezzo PLC for a Chimichanga, Tragus for a Bella Italia and Mitchell’s and Butler for a Harvester.

Located on the banks of the River Great Ouse the development will also include a major new public square and new footbridge linking the site to St Mary’s Gardens.

With planning permission already achieved for the full range of enhancements that the development will bring to the experience for visitors to the town, Bedford Riverside Regeneration Limited, the council’s development partner for the Riverside North site, has welcomed Wagamama’s decision to sign up to the scheme.

Colin McQueston, Director of Bedford Riverside Regeneration Limited commented, “We are delighted to have Wagamama on board for the scheme. Wagamama are proving very popular across the country and despite the challenging economic climate show there is real interest from new occupiers to come to Bedford, and specifically to the Riverside North scheme. In addition to the tenants already signed, we are currently in discussions with a number of further well-known brands who are keen to take up space in the scheme and I look forward to further announcements to come”.

Dave Hodgson, Mayor of Bedford Borough added: “The addition of Wagamama is another major boost for this scheme and for Bedford Town Centre.  This development is intended to boost footfall for new and existing town centre businesses, and the inclusion of such popular, high quality traders as Wagamama will make a big contribution to this.  Wagamama will sit alongside the other restaurants, the return of town centre cinema, two new public squares, the footbridge and new links between the town and the riverside as new attractions which help make Bedford town centre even more enjoyable for people of all ages, during the day and in the evening.”
