201 Bishopsgate Retail Fully Let for British Land & Blackstone

October 19, 2011

On behalf of British Land and Blackstone, Davis Coffer Lyons’ Development Leasing team is pleased to welcome two new additions to the food and beverage offer at Broadgate, City of London. Rocket and The Coffeesmiths Collective are taking the remaining ground floor retail space at 201 Bishopsgate.

Rocket, specialising in upmarket pizzas, grills and creative salads, has taken a 4,700 sq ft unit over ground floor and mezzanine and The Coffeesmiths Collective will occupy a unit comprising 700 sq ft, both on new 15 year lease terms.

Both operators will be joining more than fifty existing shops, bars and restaurants across the Broadgate Estate and will benefit from a business community of over 30,000 people, an affluent market in and around the estate and footfall from the popular Spitalfields Market and Shoreditch High Street nearby.

201 Bishopsgate & The Broadgate Tower form the latest completed phase of development at Broadgate and all five restaurant and food units within the two buildings are now fully let, with Rocket and Coffeesmiths joining Egyptian cafe concept Cilantro, Japanese sushi restaurant Tsuro, and Pret a Manger within the Broadgate Plaza.

This will be the fourth outlet for Rocket and the first since the company merged with Luke Johnson and James Horler’s Mediterranean concept, Ego, to form 3Sixty Restaurants in April 2011. Rocket has existing sites in Mayfair; at Old Broad Street in the City; and at Churchill Place in Canary Wharf.

New Zealand operator, The Coffeesmiths Collective, currently operates one outlet on Leather Lane, Clerkenwell, called The Department for Coffee and Social Affairs.
