GCW kicks off in Wembley

GCW has been appointed to advise on Wembley Central, the retail-led mixed use scheme in North London following a change of ownership last year.

Wembley Central comprises 118,000 sq ft of retail and restaurants, an 86 bed Travelodge hotel, 273 apartments and a 24-hour multi-storey car park. It benefits from excellent communication links and is built around Wembley Central mainline and underground stations. Key retailers include Tesco, Sports Direct, Iceland, Argos and TK Maxx. There are over 2.5 million people living within a two mile radius of the centre and it is one of the fastest growing suburbs in London.

“There are clear placemaking opportunities to capitalise on nearby Wembley Stadium and to serve the immediate growing catchment. Our aspiration is to improve the offer, mix and vibrancy and for the centre to become more community focused. All the tenants trade well and there is lots of potential to improve the customer experience” says GCW director Nick Warr.

GCW will focus first on asset management and new tenant opportunities. It will also provide professional services for rent reviews and lease renewals at the centre.
