Broadgate Circle Line Up Completed

January 27, 2015

Broadgate Circle is now completely let or under offer after Davis Coffer Lyons – the leisure specialists – secured five further lettings on behalf of British Land and GIC.

Sourdough pizzeria Franco Manca has taken a 1,500 sq ft; José Pizarro Tapas Bar & Restaurant, a new all-day operation by renowned Spanish chef José Pizarro, has taken 1,400 sq ft; and US surf & turf concept Crab Tavern, has taken a 5,700 sq ft unit for its first UK restaurant. In addition, Beany Green coffee shop will occupy a 522 sq ft kiosk with the final kiosk currently under offer and due to be announced imminently.

These join Hakkasan Group’s contemporary dim sum teahouse Yauatcha; The Botanist by the award-winning ETM Group; Aubaine French restaurant, boulangerie and patisserie; Lebanese canteen and delicatessen Comptoir Libanais; and Shoryu Ramen, which specialises in Hakata tonkotsu ramen, which were all announced at the end of last year (2014).

Davis Coffer Lyons has provided comprehensive advice throughout the £20m redevelopment from pre-planning through to hand-picking the occupiers. The food, drink and leisure scheme re-opens in spring 2015 with the latest restaurants due to open in the summer.

Tracey Mills, Development and London Estate Leasing Director at Davis Coffer Lyons said: “Broadgate Circle is an excellent example of our unique approach to leisure developments and how we can truly crystallise value for our clients. From the outset we worked closely with British Land to help them to identify the opportunity to add value through an improved dining offer. We were instrumental during the design and build process, advising on plans and assisting contractor Arup with feasibility. Finally, we hand picked operators that would complement each other ensuring a vibrant and dynamic offer, which would appeal to the scheme’s wide range of visitors. We relish the challenge this type of project presents and take great pride in exceeding our clients expectations with the results we achieve.”
