Development & London Estates Leasing / A1 Food Retail Lettings

  • Broadgate Circle: We introduced independent Australian coffee shop Beany Green and Street Kitchen’s Shop – serving up “restaurant know-how lovingly crammed between two slices of bread” - to complement the restaurant line-up as part of the redevelopment of Broadgate Circle.
  • South Kensington: We continue to advise South Kensington Estates on its South Kensington and Brompton Quarter holdings. In South Kensington, we introduced cold pressed juice concept Roots and Bulbs to Exhibition Road, joining La Patisserie des Reves and Fernandez & Wells, and Brompton Food Market to Thurloe Place.
  • Opera Quarter, Covent Garden: We provide ongoing agency for this niche food retailing and restaurant destination which has been transformed since its purchase in 2006. This includes the introduction of retailers such as British bakery Peyton & Byrne, Venetian bacaro and deli Augustus Harris and artisanal Champagne, cheese and charcuterie concept, Champagne + Fromage, alongside Siam Thai, Primrose Bakery, Gelatorino, and Hope & Greenwood.

    Our work in Covent Garden also extends to the Coliseum estate, having introduced Koshari Street, and artisanal Italian gelato concept, La Gelateria, St Martin’s Courtyard, where we introduced enoteca/caffe Dalla Terra to St Martin’s Courtyard, and Seven Dials, introducing lifestyle café, Timberyard and more recently, 26 Grains and Free Range People in Neal’s Yard
  • Carnaby: We’ve introduced The Detox Kitchen, the first site for popular cupcake concept Crumbs & Doilies and fruit and smoothie café Moosh as part of the transformation of Kingly Court, as well as Soho Grind to Beak Street
  • Cadogan Estate: The letting to Comptoir Libanais in Duke of York Square is part of is part of a wider initiative by Cadogan to create a more vibrant food and beverage offer estate wide, with greater choice in terms of cuisine type and price point. This includes more “grab & go” and A1 food retail with further lettings to be announced.
  • Covent Garden Market:We’ve worked on the steering of the South Wells of the Market towards A1 food uses, initially with lettings to Crème de la Crepe, Le Marche du Quartier, Battersea Pie Station, more recently complemented by Chez Antoinette’s traditional French tartines.
  • The Great Eastern Market, Westfield Stratford City: Westfield’s unique modern take on a traditional food market provides a key USP at Europe’s largest urban shopping centre. 14 units are located next to the 32,000 sq ft Waitrose in a distinctly different environment with a market feel, mixing specialist food retailing with an element of eat-in and with a dedicated demo kitchen that hosts a range of events throughout the year. We worked closely with Westfield to deliver the Great Eastern Market, introducing (amongst others), patisserie and macaroon specialist L’Orchidee and Japan Centre by Umai, Eastern European bakery Karaway and microbrewery Tap East as part of an exciting line-up of delis from around the world. We have recently introduced Rasa Malaysia and an exciting “pop-up” by Borough Market’s Bread Ahead.
  • More London: Acting on behalf of More London Development, we delivered a range of A1 offers for the prestigious office estate, including Pret a Manger, Itsu, EAT, Spianata & Co, Pod and Costa Coffee.
