The letting campaign for Waterloo.London, our major retail transformation at Waterloo station, kicked off in style on Thursday 20th June at House of Vans.
Around 150 retailers and agents joined us to learn more about LCR’s vision to set a new benchmark for progressive travel retail destinations in the UK.
Waterloo.London is bringing 135,000 sq ft of opportunity for retail, food & beverage and leisure brands to the heart of the South Bank. Opening in Spring 2021, it will feature forty new glass-fronted units of various sizes over three floors, including external-facing units along a new pedestrianised street, the Waterloo Curve.
Guests experienced a VR walk-through of the scheme and heard from South Bank BID and Waterloo.London anchor tenant, Time Out Market, about the incredible dining experience it will offer.
Adrian Lee, development director at LCR, explained how Waterloo.London will give the 100 million annual passengers flowing through Waterloo and 20 million tourists visiting the South Bank a reason to stay and spend.
Adrian said: “The future of retail will be defined by the availability of new and exciting experiences for consumers, and we’re excited to kick start this transformation by creating a destination inspired by the creative spirit of Waterloo.”
Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market, explained how Time Out’s dining concept has created the most visited place in Portugal, with 3.9 million visitors to Time Out Market Lisbon in 2018 alone.
“When we open in 2021,” he said, “the best table in town will be communal and you won’t have to reserve it in advance. We can’t wait to bring London’s outstanding and diverse culinary and cultural scene under one roof in such a great space.”
Thanks to the skaters, sushi chefs and all our guests who made it such a memorable evening.
Our agents Cushman & Wakefield and Union Street Partners are now taking enquiries.
