BEACHCROFT ON WESTFIELD STRATFORD OPENING
14 Sep, 2011
Beachcroft LLP delivers on time for Westfield Stratford City opening
On the day of the long-awaited opening of Europe’s largest urban shopping centre – Westfield Stratford City – Beachcroft’s real estate team have completed 50 per cent of the total lettings required to ensure that the Centre is trading vibrantly from day one.
The 150 deals completed at Westfield Stratford City are the latest chapter in an ongoing success story for Beachcroft, who has acted for the shopping centre giant Westfield for over a decade. Under the leadership of Bristol-based partner David Esam, members of the 40-strong national team also acted on the leasing of the Westfield London and Westfield Derby schemes and have now delivered over 1,000 lettings to this client nationwide.
Commenting on the project, client relationship partner David Esam said: “We were delighted to be appointed once again by Westfield, particularly given our experience at Westfield London, Merry Hill, Tunbridge Wells, Derby and Nottingham. At Stratford, we have delivered all of the lettings required in the timescales specified by the client, who has already let more in terms of floorspace and number of tenants signed than on any previous scheme. This is an exciting addition to the London landscape and a tremendous achievement by everyone on the team.”
The lettings at Westfield Stratford have been project managed by London-based associate Ben O’Donnell and supported by other members of the firm’s national real estate team.
