Windsor attracts flurry of lettings

GCW has advised on a series of new lettings in Windsor. From restaurants to sweet shops, the team has demonstrated it is the agent of choice for landlords wanting to exploit demand for one of the country’s most buoyant towns.

Windsor remains a dominant market and has benefited from the return of international tourists. The affluent town is attracting interest from a range of occupiers and so far this year, GCW has secured a series of new lettings.

GCW has helped AEW secure a series of new lettings at its 260,000 sq ft scheme, Windsor Yards. Recent highlights include agreeing a lease with Ole & Steen. The all-day bakery opened its doors in August with a full range of Danish baked treats. GCW has also secured lettings to Oliver Bonas and Brook Taverner.

Elsewhere in the town the team has attracted pizza restaurant Franco Manca which has taken a 15-year lease on the former White Stuff unit at 136/137 Peascod Street. GCW acted on behalf of a private investor, agreeing a rent of £90,000 pa with a break after 10 years. Elsewhere on Peascod Street, the agent acted for Daniel Department Store to agree a 10-year lease with Boots, providing the retailer with direct access into the department store. On the same street, GCW acquired a store for Mr Simms Sweet Shop on a 5-year lease.

GCW Partner Nick Warr said: “We are delighted by the number of transactions we have completed in Windsor so far this year. We are experts in the town, understand what makes it relevant to its catchment and can attract occupiers, using our data to maximise value for our clients.”
