We look forward to engaging with visitors and showcasing our lifestyle collections in our beautiful new store within this exciting development.”
David Lockyer, head of Broadgate, British Land, added: “We’ve had fantastic leasing success at Broadgate, helping us create a vibrant place for people to work and visit. These new customers, our upcoming developments and our plans for a park at Exchange Square will help us continue to evolve Broadgate into a world class mixed use destination.”
Joint owners property developer British Land and GIC are investing £1.5bn in Broadgate, with the plans to deliver 4.9 million sq ft of new workplaces, retail spaces and restaurants.
