Snippet from Philip Sandzer on the London Retail and Leisure Market


European Land are doing a remarkable job in Paddington. This will improve further as their overall plans come together over the next four years.

The improvements to Tottenham Court Road Station, and the new Crossrail, will ultimately link this end of Oxford Street with Centre Point and St Giles and will have a major impact on the eastern end of the greatest shopping street in the world.

It is still the poor relation to the western Marble Arch end, but I believe this will balance itself out significantly over the coming years.
