Development & London Estates Leasing / Flagship Lettings

  • The Ivy Chelsea Garden: acting on behalf of Martin Properties, we let the former Henry J Bean’s on Kings Road to Caprice Holdings for the Ivy Chelsea Garden, which perfectly fit the brief for an accessible, all day neighbourhood restaurant that makes the most of the amazing garden.
  • Heddon Street Kitchen: acting on behalf of the Crown Estate, we completed the letting of the former Living Room site in Heddon Street- Regent Street’s eating quarter- to Gordon Ramsay Group
  • Ivy Market Grill: we secured the first Ivy Market Grill for a flagship unit on Covent Garden Piazza at 1a Henrietta Street
  • Cafe Colbert: we received an overwhelming response from prospective operators when marketing the former Oriel site at 50-52 Sloane Square on behalf of the Cadogan Estate, advising them on the preferred partner in keeping with its long term objectives. Rex Restaurants Associates’ Jeremy King and Chris Corbin, the team behind The Wolseley, have since opened the new restaurant in October 2012 to much acclaim.
  • MASH: Following its restoration of two of London's most famous and iconic Art Deco restaurants, we advised The Crown Estate to secure MASH (Modern American Steak House), owned by Copenhagen Concepts ApS, at the Brewer Street restaurant at Quadrant 3. This is the first MASH London restaurant outside of Denmark, which opened in November 2012.
  • Balthazar: we secured the London outpost of the acclaimed New York restaurant Balthazar by Keith McNally, who operates this Parisian-style brasserie and New York institution with Caprice Holdings at the former Theatre Museum in Covent Garden.
  • Brasserie Zedel: Acting on behalf of The Crown Estate, we completed the letting of the Sherwood Restaurant, the former Atlantic Bar & Grill to Rex Restaurants Associates, within the Quadrant Development. The site became one of London’s most acclaimed new restaurants for 2012; a divergence in price point from the normal Rex model to fill the 350 capacity restaurant.
  • The Gilbert Scott: Acting on behalf of Harvey Handelsman at Manhatton Loft Corporation, we were tasked to source the best possible operator for the fabulous space within the outstanding listed restaurant within the new Renaissance Hotel at St Pancras, gateway to Europe, and delivered . A tripartite agreement was agreed between the hotel operating partners Marriott to deliver a restaurant to an operator befitting the grand scale of the hotel and a USP: Marcus Wareing.
  • Aqua: we secured the entire rooftop restaurant of the former Dickens & Jones store on Regent Street, to Hong Kong restaurant group, Aqua, one of the largest restaurant lettings of the year.
  • The Delaunay: we brokered the deal for Jeremy King and Chris Corbin of Rex Restaurant Associates for their second outlet after Wolseley, located in Covent Garden. Amaya and Petrus - the Halkins: we acted on behalf of Grosvenor in securing lettings to Michelin Star restaurants within this exclusive London village.
  • Hakkasan: On behalf of the Lancer Estate, we effected a letting to Megu from New York, subsequently opening as Hakkasan in the fashionable Bruton Street, Mayfair to complement the high end retail.
  • Galvin La Chapelle: we were tasked with sourcing the best possible operator on behalf of Hammerson for the former listed girls’ school, juxtaposed amongst the City’s soaring office building. Chris and Jeff Galvin were the perfect fit, choosing to operate a more formal dining restaurant together with a more relaxed brasserie.
  • Bocca di Lupo: we effected the letting to Jacob Kennedy on behalf of Archer Estates, in a pioneering move to this part of Soho which has now become achingly cool.
  • Nobu Berkeley: acting on behalf of City Site Estates we completed this to Como Holdings; a sister to the first within the Met Hotel
