Acquiring new store sites for retail clients is a significant part of our business. We provide bespoke advice which is based upon extensive market knowledge and wide experience of the retail sector. Focused research enables us to assist with store location strategy, identify and acquire off-market opportunities, and negotiate the best possible financial packages.
We also have excellent relationships with the country’s leading shopping centre developers, which enables us to secure prime sites for our clients at the planning stage.
Once specific sites are identified, we will liaise closely with solicitors, from drawing up detailed heads of terms, right through to completion.
In short, we adopt an innovative, supportive and thoroughly professional approach.
On behalf of our clients we have acquired over 500,000 sq ft of prime retail space in major regional shopping centres including Bluewater, Brent Cross, Cribbs Causeway, Lakeside, Meadowhall, Merry Hill, Metrocentre, Trafford Centre, Westfield London & Westfield Stratford City.
We have also acquired in excess of 60 prime retail units for Halifax/Lloyds, including flagship branches in Oxford Street, Brompton Road, Bishopsgate, Canary Wharf, Cambridge and Bristol.
