AEW appoints joint letting agents at Windsor Royal Station

5th September 2023 | Jack Oliver

AEW has appointed GCW alongside Lunson Mitchenall as joint letting agents for its recently-purchased Windsor Royal Station retail and leisure scheme.

AEW’s Urban Real Estate Fund (UREF) acquired the 74,000 sq ft scheme last month for £18.5m. GCW advised on the purchase and created a retail and leisure leasing strategy for the project.

Forming part of Windsor & Eton Central train station and situated opposite Windsor Castle, the Grade II-listed building was originally built for the exclusive use of the Royal Family.

The scheme’s retail tenants include Hobbs, Whistles, Phase Eight, Jigsaw, Space NK, Jo Malone, Sweaty Betty and Mint Velvet, whilst its food and beverage offering is led by Bills, Five Guys, and All Bar One.

It also sits adjacent to the 260,000 sq ft Windsor Yards shopping centre, which UREF acquired in May 2021. GCW have worked on the shopping centre for over 20 years.

Nick Warr, partner at GCW, said: “Given Windsor’s enviable status as a major tourist destination, together with one of the most affluent catchments in the country, we have a unique opportunity to continue to deliver a strong retail and leisure offering for visitors, with the proposed transformation of the town centre, which will cement Windsor as a premier destination.”
