CBRE Global Investors has announced the completion of its £16m shopping centre refurbishment of Angel Central, London.
The works, designed by international architects Haskoll, have been delivered by RED Construction and development managers Queensberry.
In 2018, CBRE Global Investors were granted planning permission to transform the destination and have since undertaken works to reconfigure the basement car park.
This has generated over 20,000 sq ft in bespoke and flagship units for global fashion brand UNIQLO and fitness studio Frame, both having joined the scheme in late 2019, improving the overall retail and leisure offer at Angel Central.
The redevelopment has also seen the creation of a pedestrian link bridge and balcony extensions on the first floor, above a fully glazed kiosk within the central plaza, and enhanced lighting, paving, and balustrading.
The 12-tonne ‘Angel Wings’ have also been elevated by 3.5 metres at the heart of the scheme,.
New electric car charging points alongside additional bicycle parking have also been added to the scheme.
“This is a key moment for Angel Central, one of our flagship projects within our EMEA shopping centre portfolio,” said Eric Decouvelaere, EMEA head of retail, CBRE Global Investors.
“Angel Central is a perfect example of the investment criteria needed for a successful scheme. Location and relevance are both critical and as this centre is located in the heart of London, providing tailored experiences to our customers who now want to shop, dine, socialise and work-out, Angel Central offers it all.”
James Coulsey, development director at Queensberry, added: “It is fantastic to see the development at Angel Central complete. We have managed to transform the centre, introduce some great new occupiers, and create new inviting spaces.”
CBRE and CWM represent Angel Central for both retail and leisure enquiries.
