Land Securities secures several retail and leisure lettings across South East

Land Securities has confirmed 127,000 sq ft of retail and leisure lettings across its shopping centre portfolio and retail development pipeline at the MAPIC property conference in Cannes, France this week.

A five screen Curzon Cinema totalling 21,700 sq ft has been confirmed at Westgate, Oxford, the proposed 800,000 sq ft city centre scheme that Land Securities is planning in partnership with The Crown Estate.

Luxury fashion brand Michael Kors has also agreed to take a 2,200 sq ft unit at the centre, joining John Lewis which has already confirmed a 142,000 sq ft store, and Next which is taking 47,400 sq ft.

At Bluewater, Kent, Land Securities has brought seven new brands to the centre since it took ownership in July with names such as White Stuff, Bill’s, American Eagle, Rockar Hyundai and Le Creuset taking space totalling 23,600 sq ft.

Scott Parsons, managing director, Retail, said: ’This raft of lettings across both our existing and proposed new centres is testament to the strength of our retail portfolio, which we have been reshaping to focus on the key themes of dominance, experience and convenience.

“The best brands want the best space in the best locations, and that is exactly what Land Securities can deliver.’
