Leon chooses Dundrum Town Centre for first signing in Ireland
Hammerson, on behalf of the Dundrum Partnership, has signed naturally fast food brand, Leon, to open a flagship restaurant in Dundrum Town Centre. Leon currently has 61 restaurants across the globe with 52 in the UK, and plans to roll out 20 outlets across Ireland by 2023.
Leon will occupy 1,886 sq ft in the Upper Pembroke District of the centre. The new dining brand will form part of a wider development that will reposition existing retail units to create four new restaurants and additional leisure space. The new restaurants will sit alongside Harvey Nichols, the existing restaurants and outside dining terrace.
The first restaurants within the Dundrum redevelopment are set to open in the last quarter of 2019. Fine food emporium Fallon & Byrne is also set to open a new flagship food hall, delicatessen and restaurant in Pembroke Square. Other recent additions to the centre include Rituals, The Couture Club and Folkster.
Simon Betty, director of retail for Ireland at Hammerson, said: “Leon is a quality brand and a great addition to the centre’s culinary mix. It sets the tone for the outstanding dining and leisure environment the Pembroke District will provide for customers.”
