British Land and Hercules Unit Trust have signed 16 new retail, food and beverage lettings at Glasgow Fort following the completion of the new £12m Leisure Quarter which features four restaurants and a 600-space multi-storey car park.
In the new Leisure Quarter Gourmet Burger Kitchen has taken 3,000sq ft and Thaikhun 3,750sq ft both on 15-year leases.
YO! Sushi will transform the centre’s entrance with a 2,300sq ft restaurant on a 20-year lease while Costa has upsized and will open one of its largest UK units taking 3,500sq ft on a 10-year lease. Pret a Manger will operate a bespoke 2,500-sq ft glazed pod featuring a green living wall on a 20-year lease.
Café Rouge has taken 3,900sq ft on a 15-year lease for its first Scottish out-of-town restaurant.
Nando’s which has traded very successfully since first opening at Glasgow Fort has extended into an adjacent unit almost doubling its space to 4,700sq ft on a 15-year lease.
James Duck, asset manager for British Land, said: “Glasgow Fort is a great example of how we’re creating outstanding places that reflect people’s changing lifestyles, and there’s more to come. “Glasgow Fort’s continued outperformance gave us the confidence to develop the Leisure Quarter increasing the breadth and depth of our food and beverage offering and providing an additional 600 car parking spaces to accommodate growing customer numbers.”
