Property advisory firm Time Retail Partners has been appointed to by Land Securities as retail agent for Bluewater shopping centre.

Time will work alongside Shelley Sandzer to develop Bluewater’s food and leisure offer.

The retail property advisory business was founded by Rob Wingrave, Nigel Thompson and Bruce Nutman in March this year.

Russell Loveland, Portfolio Director at Land Securities, said: “There is sustained demand for Bluewater, particularly amongst international retailers and brands seeking to create something special, which has led to a number of industry firsts in the last 12 months. The addition of Time Retail Partners to the team means we can extend our reach even further to secure more debutants and one-of-a-kind statement stores.”

Bluewater had a 2014 record year for sales, with a 4.7% increase on 2013, previously Bluewater’s best-ever year.
