Patisserie Valerie and Bill’s have been announced to the line-up at The Lexicon Bracknell, the £240 million retail and leisure development in Berkshire.

The brands join wagamama, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Nando’s, Chimichanga and Carluccio’s which have already been announced for the urban regeneration scheme, which is now 71.2% pre-let, with a further 77,709 sq ft in negotiations.

Patisserie Valerie has signed a lease for a 580 sq ft unit on The Avenue, while Bill’s Restaurant is to open in a 3,454 sq ft unit on Braccan Walk.

Retailers at the scheme include Fenwick, H&M, Next, KIKO Milano, Fat Face, Marks & Spencer, L’Occitane en Provence and Ernest Jones.

Jessica Berney, head of UK retail at Schroder Real Estate, said: “These new signings will boost the new retail in the town centre and complement the impressive line–up of casual dining brands. Bracknell is well on the way to becoming the shopping and leisure destination of choice in Berkshire, when it opens on September 7 2017.”

The Lexicon Bracknell is being developed by The Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, a 50:50 joint venture between Legal & General Capital and Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, working in partnership with Bracknell Forest Council.

The joint agents for The Lexicon Bracknell are CBRE and Lunson Mitchenall.
