Camden Market's hospitality hot spot is getting a makeover with new lease
Camden Market owner, LabTech and Colliers International have created a new approach to leasing the retail and hospitality element of Hawley Wharf.
Hawley Wharf is the 580,000 sq ft mixed-use destination due to open in Camden this autumn.
The programme, which will formally launch at an open house event in Hawley Wharf next Tuesday (April 9), is designed to make it easy for entrepreneurs, independents and artisans, including those new to bricks and mortar, to take space in the development.
Tomer Bercoviz, LabTech’s commercial director responsible for Hawley Wharf, said: “We recognise it is important to break down barriers for entrepreneurs, independents and artisans.
“That means sharing the risks, increasing the ease with which such businesses can take space, and supporting them as they grow.
“In addition, our strategy enables us to support international brands looking to break into the UK market for the first time, providing them with a platform in the heart of Camden that will give them the opportunity to grow globally.”

According to analysis by LabTech and Colliers, the approach could significantly reduce startup costs for operators.
The open house event on April 9 is aimed at potential operators, and has been promoted extensively via social media, adverts in Time Out and online.
Bobby Blake, director at Colliers International, added: “Hawley Wharf is a different type of destination, not just for Camden, but London as a whole.
“Offering a mix of spaces, from large and small units, kiosks and converted railway arches, it will be a place where brands can thrive in a collective community. Delivering the vision, however, means taking a different approach to both how the leasing is done and the nature of the relationship between the landlord and occupier.”
Hawley Wharf Camden is a 580,000 sq ft mixed-scheme destination that will deliver a unique Camden-style ecosystem for visitors and workers to enjoy.
The canal-side mixed-use development will provide 150 shops, over 60 places to eat, 195 apartments and 50,000 sq ft of co-working space.
