Brent Cross kicks off 40th anniversary year by welcoming trio of new brands

Hammerson and Standard Life Investments UK Shopping Centre Trust, joint owners of Brent Cross shopping centre, have signed up Urban Decay, Tesla Motors and Smiggle to join the line-up of retailers at the centre.

International make-up brand Urban Decay has signed up to a 399-sq ft unit next to Kurt Geiger, for only its second standalone store in London.

Following a successful temporary popup in Brent Cross, Californian based Tesla Motors, the designer and manufacturer of premium electric vehicles, has made the decision to take a permanent 2,060-sq ft unit in the centre. The new store, which is expected to open in the spring, will become Tesla’s third in London.

And Smiggle has taken a 768-sq ft unit next to Lush in the upper level of the centre.

Conrad Bacon, assistant director of retail asset management at Hammerson, said: “These latest signings demonstrate Brent Cross shopping centre’s continuing ability to attract high-quality international brands. Tesla in particular is a great example of the strength of our commercial approach – and the strength of the location. Now in its 40th year, the centre continues to be seen as a gateway for international retailers entering the UK.”
