Raft of lettings for Two Rivers, Staines-upon-Thames

Aberdeen Asset Management has secured nine new retail and leisure brands to join Surrey’s leading retail and leisure park, Two Rivers, Staines-upon-Thames. The scheme is jointly owned by client funds of Aberdeen Asset Management and M&G Real Estate. The record stream of lettings has seen over 84,500 sq ft of new space exchange in less than 12 months, bringing the scheme to 99 per cent let and includes a much greater catering and leisure offer..
Casual dining brands Wagamama and Gourmet Burger Kitchen have taken 3,760 sq ft and 3,500 sq ft respectively, splitting a unit previously occupied by Gap, both on 20-year leases. The new restaurants join TGI Friday’s which exchanged on a 15-year lease for a 7,190-sq unit, next to Vue cinema, and is one of the largest restaurants in the chain’s portfolio. In addition, café operators Pret a Manger and Kaspa have both joined the line-up taking a combined 6,450 sq ft of new space.
The restaurants will sit alongside new retailer brands including Next, which will occupy the 50,500-sq ft former Tesco unit on a new 10-year lease; Pandora, which has signed for a 3,115-sq ft unit on a 10 year lease, and Swag Jewellery which has taken on a five-year lease on a 1,700-sq ft unit. In addition, homeware and household retailer Wilko has agreed a deal for 8,100 sq ft of space on a 15-year lease and Pure Gym has taken an assignment of the former Virgin Active site.
Simon Moscow of Aberdeen Asset Management, said: “We continue to adopt a proactive asset management strategy to ensure the tenant mix meets the demands of the catchment. The scheme boasts a strong occupier base, but we are always seeking opportunities to improve and grow this.
The 380,000sq ft scheme is anchored by Waitrose, Boots, Next, TK Maxx and Vue cinemas.
