LANDSEC GROWS DINING AND RETAIL OFFER AT VICTORIA, LONDON

Landsec has announced over 2323 sq m of leasing deals across Victoria as demand for prime hospitality and retail space grows. With office workers and tourists returning to central London, Victoria is increasingly becoming the prime destination for hospitality and retail brands looking to expand.

Incipio have chosen Victoria, London to launch their eighth dining concept, The Palm House, as part of their plan to grow their presence across the capital. The team behind Pergola and Lost in Brixton have created the 939 sq m Miami-themed venue specifically for socialising. Split across two floors, guests will be able to choose from a range of spaces, including a Miami clubhouse on the ground floor, private dining rooms and an immersive Cuban-themed hangout upstairs.

Social enterprise Change Please will take 52 sq m at Cardinal Place. The award-winning coffee company uses 100% of its profits to help people experiencing homelessness, by training them to become specialty coffee baristas and supporting them with everything that they need to turn their lives around.

Meanwhile, the international casual dining chain Five Guys will open a 372 sq m restaurant in Cardinal Place as they seek to accelerate their UK expansion plans. Casa do Frango will bring the spirit of southern Portugal to Victoria with their authentic Piri-Piri Chicken, in a deal which sees them take 418 sq m at Nova Food.

A series of retail deals have followed the growth of Victoria’s leisure and hospitality offer, including athleisure brand Sweaty Betty, who opened a 209 sq m store earlier in the summer and Barclays Bank, who have taken just under 372 sq m.

Nik Porter, Head of Retail Brand Account Management at Landsec said: “Over the past few months, we’ve seen sustained demand for space across Nova and Cardinal Place. At both locations, our brand partners benefit from the high levels of tourism in the surrounding areas, plus a strong catchment of office workers and residents, cementing Victoria as the go-to destination for brands looking to expand within the capital.”
