Schroder UK Real Estate Fund has secured three major lettings at King’s Mall Shopping Centre in Hammersmith: fashion retailer New Look, Frame gym group and Italian cosmetics company, Kiko.
New Look has signed a 20-year lease on a major new unit at the shopping centre, comprising over 10,000 sq ft. Two existing units are currently being combined to accommodate the retailer, with a double-height frontage also being created across the new unit. The store will become the scheme’s new anchor tenant and is expected to open to the public before Christmas this year.
Frame gym joins King’s Mall on a 15-year lease, marking it’s fifth London location. The gym group was recently named ‘the number one gym in London’ by the London Evening Standard. Frame will comprise 5,315 sq ft set across two levels.
Finally, leading Italian cosmetics company, KIKO Milano, has concluded a deal for a 2,905 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease. The new store at King’s Mall has now opened to the public and stocks KIKO’s extensive range of professional make-up, skin care products and beauty accessories.
Commenting on the deals, Harry Pickering, investment manager for Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, said: “These latest signings demonstrate our commitment to providing quality, exciting amenities for those living and working in Hammersmith and the wider area. At the forefront of our ongoing enhancement strategy across our King’s Mall estate is the goal of creating a scheme which encourages people to live, work and play in the area, enjoying the unique lifestyle, retail and leisure brands available to them.”
