Canary Wharf : Shopping Underground at Jubilee Place Mall
The Canary Wharf Estate is a thriving retail, business and commercial centre, developed by Canary Wharf Group Plc. As an integrated property development, investment and management group of companies, Canary Wharf Group Plc has developed previously derelict docklands into over 16 million square feet of office, retail and leisure space across its iconic business and shopping district in inner London.
As a client of Blake Morgan, Canary Wharf Group completed the extension of the Jubilee Place Shopping Mall. Nigel Griffiths and his team handled the leasing for the 22 retail units in the scheme, which comprised the negotiation of development agreements, leases, and other ancillary documents for all units.
The Jubilee Place extension totals 44,000 sq. ft. of retail space resulting in the addition of 26 new stores to Canary Wharf’s previous offer of more than 300 shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. Combined with the Group's 115,000 sq. ft. retail development above the new Canary Wharf Crossrail Station (86,000 sf of which is due to open in May 2015), Jubilee Place makes Canary Wharf home to one of the largest retail expansions in the UK, part of the ever-growing, vibrant lifestyle offering at Canary Wharf.
Michael Kors, Godiva, Schuh, Banana Republic and The White Company are just some of the leading premium brands that have taken space in the Jubilee Place extension. Leasing agents Bruce Gillingham Pollard and Lunson Mitchenall acted on behalf of Canary Wharf Group plc. Ashurst, Bond Dickinson, DWF Biggart Baillie and Howard Kennedy FSI acted for some of the tenants.
With over 20 years of experience handling the retail leasing work for Canary Wharf Group plc, Nigel Griffiths and his team have handled in excess of 500 different transactions covering more than one million square feet of retail space. This knowledge and experience enabled the team at Blake Morgan to successfully conclude some complex lease negotiations to ensure a successful opening on 1 November 2013.
