The Dulwich Estate appoints Bruce Gillingham Pollard as their sole retail/leisure agent

The Dulwich Estate, a charity founded 400 years ago, has appointed Bruce Gillingham Pollard as its sole agent to secure suitable restaurant, retail or leisure operators for existing and upcoming available units within its portfolio. The portfolio includes property in Dulwich Village, (home to Gail’s, Jigsaw and Fired Earth), Herne Hill and West Dulwich.

Tracey Pollard, a director at Bruce Gillingham Pollard said: “We are very excited to be working with The Dulwich Estate. The redevelopment of the former dairy site will not only enhance Croxley Road but will also make a positive contribution to the local community, providing a doctors’ surgery, additional shops, and housing to the area.”

The Estate comprises 1,500 acres of land given by Edward Alleyn in 1619. The Charity, formerly named ‘Alleyn's College of God's Gift at Dulwich’ was established to educate the poor and to provide relief to those in need of accommodation. These objectives are still carried out today by the Charity’s beneficiaries Christ’s Chapel of God’s Gift at Dulwich Charity, The Dulwich Almshouse Charity, Alleyn’s School, Dulwich College, James Allen’s Girls’ School, Central Foundation Schools of London, St Olave’s & St Saviour’s Schools Foundation.

The evolution of the iconic No.1 Poultry, EC2

The City is evolving and this is no better shown than the evolution of the iconic No.1 Poultry. The grade II* listed postmodernist building designed by Sir James Stirling is being redesigned to provide 110,000 sq. ft. of creative office space and 25,000 sq. ft. of independent retail and leisure offerings.

Located in the heart of the City next to some of its oldest institutions, the No.1 Poultry building is rich with culture and heritage, making it the perfect building to help spearhead the Square Mile’s evolution towards the creation of a world-leading technological hub. The redesign of the space will provide the perfect environment for its future, next generation-leaning tenants.

GM Real Estate has instructed Bruce Gillingham Pollard as joint agent to secure the retail and leisure operators within the development.
