The appointment follows LaSalle Investment Management’s purchase of the centre 500,000-sq ft Bromley shopping centre, formerly known as intu Bromley, on behalf of Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation in December 2016. Cushman & Wakefield and Lunson Mitchenall will act as joint leasing agents on The Glades, whilst Lunson Mitchenall will also continue to provide ongoing lease advisory advice.
Ben Notley, associate with LaSalle Investment Management and asset manager for The Glades, said the appointments were key in achieving the overall vision for the popular scheme.
“This is a hugely exciting time at The Glades,” said Notley. “We have some ambitious plans to expand the leisure offering in Bromley, and to continue the work we have already begun in repositioning The Glades as a retail and experiential destination.
“We have clearly identified strong areas of growth, and are already in the process of developing plans for extending our offering and driving the evening economy across both the scheme and the wider community,” he said. “We see The Glades as a key player in supporting the development of Bromley as a whole, and we look forward to working with our stakeholders, retailers and our agents to deliver an exciting, innovative and ultimately hugely successful scheme.”
Located in the centre of Bromley, the shopping centre includes 130 shop units along with 1,500 car parking spaces, and benefits from footfall of 20 million per annum.
