The Spires takes its name from the remaining spires of the old Methodist church, where the centre now stands. The designers have cleverly retained these architectural assets and incorporated them into this modern centre.
The centre comprises over 90,000 sq ft of retail space divided into 37 units, which includes a supermarket and two restaurants and is served by a multi-storey car park. Two enclosed malls lead into open courtyards at the heart of the scheme. Specially designed features such as the intricate floor patterns & lighting add to the elegant tone.
When the developers won the opportunity to create a new shopping complex for Barnet, they were fully aware that the new development must achieve several objectives: complement an affluent residential environment, appeal to quality retailers and convince them that it could attract shoppers in Barnet. Now over 70,000 people visit the Spires each week.
The centre management team of cleaners, security, maintenance, facilities and Centre Manager control the day to day running of the centre, to give all shoppers a safe and enjoyable time at the Spires. With staff training in First Aid, Fire Safety, Security, Health and Safety and on-site emergency procedures, any situation can be dealt with in a professional and efficient manner.
The Spires customer toilets are located in the Western Mall Courtyard across from Waitrose and opposite the Car Park Lifts. These facilities include Male, Female, Disabled and Baby Changing facilities.
