West India Quay adds three

Land Securities and SREF sign three new brands at West India Quay
West India Quay, the joint venture between Land Securities and Schroder UK Real Estate Fund has added Burger & Lobster, Drake and Morgan, and Pizza Pilgrims to the F&B mix at West India Quay, its leisure scheme adjacent to Canary Wharf.
These new arrivals reflect the scheme’s evolution from traditional F&B to a more youthful, modern tenant mix, with all restaurants benefitting from extensive outside waterfront dining space.
Burger & Lobster has chosen West India Quay for its first waterside restaurant, following its launch in 2011 in Mayfair. Specialising in innovative, handcrafted cocktails and grilled British dishes, Drake and Morgan is due to open at West India Quay in Summer 2017. And Pizza Pilgrims has a growing chain of restaurants in select locations across London.
Jessica Berney, deputy fund manager of the Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, said: “By adding these three dynamic F&B brands to West India Quay, we continue to improve our leisure offering and dining experience for customers. In providing high-calibre food and beverage offers we can cater to the area’s weekday working population, and strengthen West India Quay’s identity as a vibrant weekend destination too. With West India Quay’s footfall only set to rise thanks to the future opening of Crossrail nearby and further development around the Docklands, we see significant opportunities for rental growth here as demand in the area grows.”
