Hollywood Bowl strikes deal at Uxbridge’s The Chimes

21st February 2024 | Jack Oliver

Hollywood Bowl leads 75,000 sq ft of new lettings at The Chimes Shopping Centre in Uxbridge, West London.

Opening in early 2025, the family entertainment venue will occupy 38,000 sq ft on the top floor of the former Debenhams department store. Hollywood Bowl will join Odeon – which is currently upgrading its cinema into an enhanced Odeon Luxe – as the anchors of a new leisure destination at The Chimes.

Also joining The Chimes is River Island, which will relocate into a larger 9,000 sq ft store, based over two floors.

Meanwhile, TK Maxx will relocate from nearby scheme The Pavilions to open at The Chimes in October. The clothing retailer will take 25,000 sq ft of space on the lower mall of the former Debenhams.

Located adjacent to Uxbridge Underground Station, The Chimes spans 440,000 sq ft over three floors and is supplemented by 1,500 car parking spaces. The asset is managed by Abrdn, with Colliers and Lunson Mitchenall retained as leasing agents.

Niall Macdonald, deputy fund manager at Abrdn, said: “The Chimes is already the prime destination for shopping in Uxbridge and the surrounding area. The refurbishment of the cinema to the Luxe format and the addition of Hollywood Bowl’s venue secures it as the number one leisure and shopping destination for the catchment, where people can shop and socialise. The arrival of TK Maxx later in the year and the new River Island store opening in March will strengthen the fashion offer alongside Next, H&M and New Look.”

Dan Simms, co-head of UK retail agency at Colliers, added: “This exciting news for The Chimes shows that there’s a real confidence in the centre as both a leisure and retail destination. These significant new lettings will provide a real mix of uses to broaden the retail and leisure provision here, which will continue to attract a wide variety of customers to the centre. We currently have several other units under offer, so expect to make more exciting announcements shortly.”
