Bruce Gillingham Pollard advise on prime Soho purchase

Vectis Property Group, advised by Bruce Gillingham Pollard in an off-market transaction, have acquired the freehold interest of 19 Golden Square, London from FKS Capital Partners for £10,500,000.

19 Golden Square comprises retail space on basement and ground floor, let to EAT Limited until November 2025. In addition to the retail there is full planning consent for the conversion of the vacant upper floors from office accommodation to residential space.

The Soho residential market has risen in popularity in recent years and has now become one of Central London’s most desirable neighbourhoods. The area will only be enhanced further given the proximity of the area to the new Crossrail station at Tottenham Court Road.

Jack Barratt of Bruce Gillingham Pollard commented: “The building itself fits well within our client’s portfolio strategy and offers a variety of asset management initiatives, from office refurbishment to residential development of the site”.

The vendor was represented by Bilfinger GVA

Five new restaurants signed to Cabot Circus, Bristol

Acting on behalf of Hammerson, Bruce Gillingham Pollard have signed five new restaurants to Cabot Circus, Bristol.

Austria-based pizza and pasta chain L’Osteria will be opening its first UK branch with a 2,047 sq ft store, while Handmade Burger will make its Bristol debut after taking a 1,670 sq ft unit.

Also debuting in the city are Casa Brasil and Asian-inspired fast food outlet Itsu, taking 990 sq ft and 1,000 sq ft respectively.

Meanwhile French chain Côte will be opening a 900 sq ft restaurant in the centre.

L’Osteria managing director Pru Naik said: “I’m excited to be opening the UK’s first L’Osteria and to be bringing this hugely popular restaurant brand to Bristol to begin our national roll-out.  We chose Bristol to be the home of the very first UK L’Osteria as it has such a vibrant social scene and because the city is used to embracing new dining concepts.”

Christopher Sargeant, founder and owner of Handmade Burger, added: “We are really excited to be opening in such a great location. We have had many requests from customers to come to Bristol.”

“Welcoming these five new restaurants to Cabot Circus and to Bristol is testament to the vibrant and modern destination we have successfully created for the city,” said Hammerson’s head of restaurants and leisure Sarah Fox.
