Destinations to be seen in

We’re invest in our centres to ensure we’re creating the retail and leisure destinations that customer want to visit and retailers need to be seen in

As a leading owner manager and developer of retail and leisure destinations we're always investing to make improvements to our portfolio and deliver the compelling experiences that today's customers want.

Recently we transformed intu Watford with a £180m redevelopment that has brought new retail brands, restaurants and leisure operators to the town of Watford. This year will be opening our game-changing multi-million pound leisure-led development at intu Lakeside to deliver the UK's first retail resort and one of the largest retail and leisure attractions in the south east of England.

We're also on site at intu Trafford Centre to transform Barton Square and are committed to delivering a £86m transformation of intu Broadmarsh in Nottingham.

But it’s not just change for the sake of change; we focus on using our unique industry insight to help create the stylish, sought-after destinations retailers and customers want, bringing people from further away, more often, for longer.

Place making is about about delivering a compelling experience that customers want to come and enjoy over and over again

Maintaining great assets where retailers can flourish

Keeping a property portfolio in tip-top condition requires attention to detail, great design, high quality materials and keeping a consistent standard and look throughout. To maintain standards also requires continuous investment to improve and replace the assets and fabric of the buildings.

 At Invida, with our background in the facilities sector, we recognised a gap in the market to provide a cloud-based software that gives property businesses the important information they need to manage the asset life-cycle process and costs effectively. Our business is still relatively new having only officially launched in September 2017, but already we have a number of large customer subscriptions, including intu – our very first customer.
