Londra, prende sempre più forma il mixed use destination “Broadgate”

The transformation of Broadgate into a mixed use Central London destination continues as retail space is let to new brands.

Nine new retail, food and beverage brands including GANT, Kiehl’s and Bar Douro will be opening on British Land’s campus, joining names such as Everyman, Eataly and Grind.

Watches of Switzerland, the luxury jewellers have chosen 100 Liverpool Street to open their east London flagship store, which they will use to host customer and brand events. Chocolatier, Charbonnel et Walker are returning to Broadgate following the success of their previous store in 100 Liverpool Street, while GANT, the luxury clothes retailer, is also opening its first ever east London store.

At 1 Finsbury Avenue, Bar Douro, the traditional Portuguese tapas restaurant; Yolk, the fine fast food and speciality coffee joint and Nyokee, the healthy Italian trattoria have all committed to new restaurants. Following the success of its pop-up in Finsbury Avenue Square, Yolk will open permanently at Broadgate, while Bar Douro will open its second ever restaurant. The building, which reached practical completion in June, has already attracted an exciting occupier mix including technology company Mimecast, Product Madness, an online gaming platform and the City’s first Everyman cinema.
