Independent food market to double presence at Elephant Park

15th September 2023 | Jack Oliver

An independent pan-Asian food market is set to more than double its footprint at Lendlease’s Elephant Park development in South London.

Kiki & Miumiu on Walworth Road will extend into a neighbouring unit to cover 4,745 sq ft of space and will also introduce Taiwanese bubble tea concept T4.

The decision to upsize follows two successful years of trading at Elephant Park for Kiki & Miumiu, and is a direct result of strong sales for the brand.

Work has also commenced to create additional grocery and bubble tea space, which is set to open later in the year.

Guy Thomas, head of retail and place assets at Lendlease, said: “Kiki & Miumiu’s journey here at Elephant Park is a brilliant success story for the destination. The brand’s commitment to providing authentic and exciting produce has given them a loyal and engaged customer base, completely vindicating our decision to entrust this great corner unit to a new independent operation.

“We firmly believed the offer would resonate and are pleased to be supporting Kiki & Miumiu with their resulting expansion, watching them go from strength to strength as Elephant Park tenants continue to thrive.”

Lendlease is also currently in the process of marketing the latest phase of Elephant Park’s development, which includes the creation of 10 new retail and restaurant units. A number of operators at the development are said to be following in the footsteps of Kiki & Miumiu, with several discussions ongoing regarding the possibility of expansion at the development. Lendlease said that half of the new units are already under offer.
