Nine brands sign at City of London campus
The transformation of Broadgate into a mixed use Central London destination continues as retail space is let to new brands. Nine new retail, food and beverage brands including Gant, Kiehl’s and Bar Douro will be opening on British Land’s campus, joining names such as Everyman, Eataly and Grind.
Luxury jeweller Watches of Switzerland has chosen the 520,000-sq ft redevelopment at 100 Liverpool Street to open its east London flagship store, while Chocolatier Charbonnel et Walker is returning to Broadgate following the success of a previous store in 100 Liverpool Street and luxury clothes retailer Gant is also opening its first ever east London store. They will be joined by skincare brands Kiehl’s, Neom and The Body Shop.
At 1 Finsbury Avenue, Bar Douro, the traditional Portuguese tapas restaurant; Yolk, the fine fast food and speciality coffee joint and Nyokee, the healthy Italian trattoria have all committed to new restaurants. The building, which reached practical completion in June, has already attracted an exciting occupier mix including technology company Mimecast, Product Madness, an online gaming platform and the City’s first Everyman cinema.
David Lockyer, Head of Broadgate, British Land said: “We’ve had fantastic leasing success at Broadgate, helping us create a vibrant place for people to work and visit. These new customers, our upcoming developments and our plans for a park at Exchange Square will help us continue to evolve Broadgate into a world-class mixed-use destination.”
CBRE, CWM, Davis Coffer Lyons and Nash Bond advised British Land on the lettings.
