British Land: expands its retail and leisure offer at Regent’s Place

British Land has signed nearly 30,000 square feet of dining, leisure and wellness space at Regent’s Place, its campus located at the intersection of Camden, Fitzrovia and London’s Knowledge Quarter.

The Gym Group has signed a new 19,000 square foot London flagship gym at 1 Triton Square, while Lakeland Climbing, the UK’s leading operator of indoor climbing gyms, has taken 7,500 square feet across 350 and 338 Euston Road, offering an alternative fitness offering with a community focus.

BloomsYard all-day cafe and wine bar has also opened in Regent’s Place following the successful opening of its second cafe at 100 Liverpool Street on British Land’s Broadgate campus.

Alice Keown, Director of Rentals – Restaurants and Leisure at British Land, said“These new rentals build on continued rental momentum and are fantastic additions to the existing retail and leisure offerings at Regent’s Place. As well as excellent amenities, the Campus benefits from its location in the namely, from the proximity of transport and realm links.”

Regent’s Place is well-placed to attract a wide range of life science and innovation companies looking to cluster around the academic, scientific and research institutions of London’s Knowledge Quarter.

Other retail and leisure brands on site include Amazon Fresh, which opened a grocery store in late 2021, specialty coffee chain, Black Sheep Coffee, smoothie bowls and beverage coffee, Acai Berry, the Asian-inspired food chain, Wasabi and The Union bar and restaurant. .
