Central Cross hosts Topshop Showspace for London Fashion Week

Topshop Showspaces’ two day, four show event, kicked off on Saturday with ‘Fashion East’, which identifies and supports the most exciting names in the industry, followed by ‘House of Holland’ by Henry Holland. Sunday saw Greek designer Mary Katrantzou showcase her latest offering, wrapped up by Topshop’s own collection, later in the day.

Topshop, the British high-street favourite has always been known for its cool, edgy and eclectic style. This seasons inspiration was taken from British classics, incorporating the city’s latest trends and modelled by some of the best names in the industry: Hailey Baldwin, Jourdan Dunn and Joan Smalls.

The chosen location Central Cross was the perfect site to house the event. Central Cross will become the centre point of Tottenham Court Road, Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus, connecting retailers and consumers in a new retail and restaurant community.



Hammersmith gets a food court for the modern age this January

This January sees the opening of Hammersmith’s most exciting food and beverage concept – Feast Canteen. Breathing life and energy into Kings Mall shopping centre, Feast Canteen will host some of London’s most popular restaurant operators on a rotational basis, bringing both a spectrum of choice and anticipation to the area.

Owned by the hugely successful Incipio Group, the founders of Pergola on the Roof amongst other concepts, this new venture draws on their popularity of hosting several restaurants at their venues, offering variety and the ability to keep drawing customers back for a different experience.

The initial line up of restaurant operators include Patty & Bun, Born & Raised, Salvation in Noodles and Breddos Tacos, providing variety through a mix of complimentary operators. The food court will include 350 covers, opening at breakfast through to dinner alongside a takeaway and delivery service.

Schroders bought Kings Mall in 2015 and have been investing hugely to improve the aesthetics of the scheme. Feast Canteen builds on the success of lettings at Kings Mall with New Look opening a 6,500 sq. ft. store on King Street and Move Your Frame opening their boutique gym concept.  Bruce Gillingham Pollard have advised Schroders since purchasing the development.

Ole & Steen opens in Canary Wharf

Ole & Steen the Danish bakery experts open their third London site in Crossrail Place, Canary Wharf.

Established for more than 20 years in their native Denmark, Ole & Steen opened their first London bakery just 9 months ago with a fourth already in the pipeline. The brand’s unfaltering values of producing handmade, high quality pastries and breads, baked daily have won over the Brits just as much as the Danish.

Acting on behalf of their client Canary Wharf Group, Bruce Gillingham Pollard secured the lease with Ole & Steen on the 2,515 sq. ft. unit. This perfectly accompanies the existing food offerings in Canary Wharf, adding a new dimension to Crossrail Place which is already home to The Big Easy, Franca Manca and The Breakfast Club.



Penhaligon’s is coming to Victoria Quarter this Autumn

Penhaligon’s the 147 year old luxury British perfume brand is set to open its first store in Autumn, at Victoria Quarter in Leeds.

Acting on behalf of the landlord Hammerson Plc, Bruce Gillingham Pollard are working alongside Nash Bond to secure exciting high end retailers to fit within the existing luxury tenant mix that Victoria Quarter has to offer.

The 1,238 sq. ft. store will sit perfectly within the grade II listed arcade showcasing Penhaligon’s full range of fragrances. Originally taking inspiration from the Turkish Baths in Jermyn Street, London, the perfumes have remained faithful to the brand’s heritage using archive recipes made by founder William Penhaligon to achieve their unique scents.

This brand is the perfect accompaniment to the high-end health and beauty offerings in Victoria Quarter, adding another dimension to an already thriving shopping destination, which will no doubt be well received by shoppers in the local area and wider region.
