Luxury brands have almost filled Westfield London’s scheme ready for its opening on October 30th, it has been reported.
Prada, Gucci and Christian Dior have taken space in a luxury ‘village’ development it co-owns with German fund Commerz Real.
‘We are particularly pleased with the excellent take-up of space given the more difficult leasing environment,” said Michael Gutman, Westfield’s managing director, UK and Europe.
“Being 96 per cent leased ten weeks out from opening to an excellent line-up of British and international brands is a great achievement by our team.”
A total of 13 luxury retailers have taken space and brands are already working on their fit-outs.
Other top-end retailers signed up to the scheme include De Beers, Mont Blanc, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co.
Commercial property portfolios are often made up of mixed assets, which include retail outlets and city offices.
