Comptoir Libanais entrées into Duke of York Square, Chelsea

October 3, 2013

Comptoir Libanais has been chosen to operate the newly created food outlet within Duke of York Square, in Chelsea an anchor at the eastern end of the Square, to compliment and bookend the eating and drinking activity close to the Saatchi Gallery towards the western end.

The Lebanese canteen and delicatessen has taken a 10 year lease on approximately 2,000 sq ft of space from Davis Coffer Lyons acting on behalf of Cadogan.

This letting is part of a wider initiative by Cadogan to create a more vibrant food and beverage offer estate wide, which takes greater advantage of the scheme’s extensive outdoor space. Comptoir Libanais was chosen for its true all day trade, colourful design, and a cuisine type not over represented in the area. It has broad appeal for families, shoppers, residents and office workers alike and is at an accessible price point.

Hugh Seaborn, CEO at Cadogan said: “Our research has shown that customers want more choice both in terms of operators and cuisine types. In order to achieve this we are carefully choosing the new operators of our eating and drinking outlets to ensure they provide the maximum appeal to our diverse range of visitors. Comptoir Libanais is a fantastic operation and the ideal addition to the scheme.”

Tracey Mills, Director of London Estate and Development Leasing at Davis Coffer Lyons said: “Cadogan Estates understands the need to provide a stronger leisure mix to support the existing retail offer. Comptoir Libanais is a quality operation and highlights the direction they are taking the scheme. This is the first of a number of new names we are working to attract and we hope to be able to confirm further lettings in the near future.”
