Meyer Bergman and Aviva Investors upgrade centre

The Bentall Centre in Kingston Upon Thames, one of the busiest shopping malls in Greater London, is expanding thanks to a £3.25m investment by owners Meyer Bergman and Aviva Linked Property Fund.

Owners Meyer Bergman and Aviva Investors have unveiled a multi-million pound refurbishment and reconfiguration programme. The investment will transform and extend the Bentall Centre’s Clarence Street entrance modernising its appearance whilst creating 2,000 sq ft of additional retail space.

Mark Gamble, head of asset management of Meyer Bergman said: “For almost 21 years the Bentall Centre has acted as regional retail hub enjoying a wide catchment stretching from South West London to Surrey and the South Coast of England. The planned upgrading aims to add value by creating new retail space to attract new brands and reinforce the centre’s position as a leading retail destination.” 

Meyer Bergman acquired a 50 per cent stake in the Bentall Centre from Aviva Linked Property Fund for £130m in March 2010. Attracting over 14 million visitors a year, the Bentall Centre has almost 700,000 sq ft of gross lettable area and is home to Bentalls Department Store, as well as over 80 retailers, including Zara, Zara Home, Apple, H&M, Massimo Dutti, LK Bennett and New Look.

Jones Lang LaSalle and Cushman & Wakefield advised the lLandlords.
