Victoria Gate in Leeds is open!

Hammerson’s latest regeneration project, Victoria Gate in Leeds, opened its doors to the public today in what will be the only major retail scheme to launch in the UK this year. The £165m scheme next to Hammerson’s Victoria Quarter arcade, forms part of the new 53,400 sq ft Victoria Leeds shopping destination.

This will create the largest premium retail and leisure venue in Northern England moving Leeds up to third in the UK’s best place to shop retail rankings, according Javelin.

Designed by architects Acme, the façade takes inspiration from the surrounding architecture of Leeds’ historic buildings and uses a mixture of white terracotta and red bricks which were manufactured in Yorkshire and Staffordshire.

The scheme is anchored by a flagship John Lewis store, which is the first in Leeds and the largest outside of London with Victoria Gate’s two street arcade home to 30 new retail brands and restaurants, as well as a casino.

Acting on behalf of Hammerson, Bruce Gillingham Pollard have leased to brands including Russell & Bromley, Nespresso, GANT, Hackett, Tommy Hilfiger, CAU, Joules, Aspinal of London, Le Pain Quotidien, Neom Organics, T2, Anthropologie and international restaurant group D&D.

Around 77% of the line-up are debuting in Leeds and 33% of the brands are new to Hammerson’s retail portfolio.

Having comprehensively regenerated a substantial part of Leeds that had been underutilised for some time, Victoria Gate has delivered over 1,500 employment opportunities in retail, hospitality and construction.

Victoria Gate has also played a key role in supporting the local community throughout its development and in partnership with Leeds Community Foundation, the Victoria Gate Fund has contributed £30,000 of funding and supported 12 local projects in Leeds that develop the employment skills and experience of young people.

David Atkins, chief executive at Hammerson said: “This is a truly unique development and there is nothing else like it in the UK. We are confident that Victoria Gate will set new standards for retail across Europe as it becomes an iconic piece of Leeds’ retail heritage.

“Whilst transforming the city’s luxury and aspirational shopping and dining offer, Victoria Gate will also provide a significant contribution to Leeds’ local economy with the city now set to become the undisputed regional shopping capital of the North.”

Leeds City Council Leader Councillor Judith Blake said: “Victoria Gate is already making a big impact on Leeds. It has introduced a significant number of employment opportunities locally. It is a striking scheme which has redefined the skyline in that sector of the city centre and its opening will further cement Leeds’ place as one of the best places to shop and visit in the UK.

"I’m delighted to welcome its opening on behalf of the city and I’m confident it will be a fantastic addition to our existing diverse offer of independent, high street and luxury retailers.”

Four brands sign up to Victoria Gate, Leeds ahead of launch

Acting on behalf of Hammerson, Burce Gillingham Pollard has secured four new brands for the £165m development, Victoria Gate, which will open its doors to the public this Thursday.

British lifestyle brand, Cath Kidston is set to open a 96 sq m store while Ghost, London’s heritage fashion house, has taken a 80 sq m store - its only boutique outside of London.

Glasses retailer Bailey Nelson is also making its debut outside of the capital, with a 60m² store next to Aspinal of London.

Another new brand coming to Leeds is young creative menswear brand, Diverso. The 60m² store will be the third in its portfolio, showcasing its British tailoring and relaxed fashion designs.

The new additions join other retailers and restaurants already signed up to the new 53,400 sq m estate including Le Pain Quotidien, Neom Organics, Hackett, Tommy Hilfiger, Anthropologie, GANT, Calvin Klein, and international restaurant group D&D.

Robin Dobson, director of retail development at Hammerson reportedly commented: “We are delighted that we’ve continued to debut great new brands in Leeds. With only a few days to go until Victoria Gate opens, Cath Kidston, Bailey Nelson, Diverso and Ghost are all exciting additions which will soon propel Leeds to the third top ranking shopping destination outside of London.”
Net-a-Porter has signed for 70,000 sq ft of office space at White City Place

Online fashion retailer Yoox Net-a-Porter (YNAP) has signed for 70,000 sq ft of office space in the MediaWorks building at Stanhope and Mitsui’s White City Place.

It is the first office occupier to take space at the scheme, and will use it as a ‘cutting-edge tech hub’. It will accommodate up to 650 staff and bring all of YNAP’s UK technology teams into one location when the company moves in in March 2017.

David Camp, chief executive of Stanhope, said: “We are delighted to welcome Yoox Net-a-Porter to White City Place, which is fast becoming the key creative hub in West London and the commercial heart of White City. At White City Place we are networked for creative thought and provide the high speed IT connectivity, tech infrastructure and social amenity that businesses like YNAP demand.”

MediaWorks is the second of three buildings under redevelopment at White City Place and will provide 230,000 sq ft of office space along with 15,000 sq ft of retail and restaurants. Bruce Gillingham Pollard are appointed on the retail and restaurant leasing of White City Place.
