Tackling Vacant Units

Empty Windows

First impressions count. Empty shop windows can soon become a blight on a town centre, which is why we are working actively to manage and dress these units. We enjoy working with partners and developing creative approaches to activating these prominent spaces. We also work closely with local agents and signpost enquiries for permanent space and pop-ups in vacant units. 

Watch this Space

It has been proven that a shop frontage that is well dressed is rented out much faster than a whitewashed window that falls into disrepair and becomes a focus for anti-social activity.

In partnership with property owners in Leamington, we are actively encouraging and working with them to dress empty units presenting a well designed frontage. The shop windows of the House of Fraser unit are a recent example and we have more planned.

LYT Marketplace

We were proud to support the LYT (Leamington Young Talent) Market delivered by Creative Leamington during Covid-19. It was an innovative and exciting way to bring 20+ vacant windows and closed businesses to life, whilst supporting 12 young artists and business people to trade via shop windows and QR codes. View the businesses and Leamington Young Talent artists here.
