Fashion line up strengthened in Lincoln
The Waterside Shopping Centre names Office as newest tenant.
Capital & Regional, the specialist retail property company, has secured Office, the leading fashion footwear brand, as the newest brand for The Waterside Shopping Centre.
Office currently trades from 80 standalone sites and 41 concession stores throughout the UK. It will occupy a 2,000 sq ft store in a prime position in The Waterside Shopping Centre, fronting on to the main high street. Office has taken a 10 year lease and is due to open its new store in August.
Andrew Haughey, Retail Asset Manager at Capital & Regional, commented: "This deal follows our letting to Stormfront, the premium UK Apple franchisee, which occupies a 3,360 sq ft unit in the centre. The addition of Office to our tenant line-up is particularly significant as it will complement Stormfront as well as other existing retailers such as New Look and Topshop, helping us to strengthen our offering and position The Waterside Shopping Centre as the dominant fashion and lifestyle destination within Lincoln city centre."
Capital & Regional purchased The Waterside Shopping Centre from clients of PRUPIM in February 2011. The scheme is currently anchored by names such as New Look and Topshop which has re-fit its 7,800 sq ft store and chose The Waterside Shopping Centre as one of the first sites in the UK to feature its latest store design.
