The Lexicon shopping centre in Bracknell – which is owned by a joint venture between Schroders Capital and Legal & General Capital – has secured eight new lettings.

The Bracknell scheme has signed the retail and food and beverage operators for a combined 23,500 sq ft of space.

Thai restaurant Giggling Squid opened in a 4,750 sq ft unit earlier this summer, whilst Danish retailer Søstrene Grene and Robert Dyas have taken 6,000 sq ft and 4,000 sq ft of space respectively.

Five Guys has opened it first restaurant in Berkshire, taking a 3,500 sq ft unit, whilst Pan-Asian eatery ChopStix has signed a ten-year lease for a 2,000 sq ft unit.

German Doner Kebabs has also opened in a 2,000 sq ft unit on the high street, whilst Mexican restaurant chain Tortilla has opened a 700 sq ft outlet.

Also opening at The Lexicon is Mr Simms Sweet Shop, which has signed a ten-year lease for a 500 sq ft unit.

Alongside the new singins, The Lexicon has also completed a number of lease renewals and regears with existing occupiers including Fat Face, Mountain Warehouse, Flying Tiger, Timberland, Clintons, Costa, L’Occitane, and New Look.

Tom Woolven, asset manager at Schroders Capital’s Real Estate team, said: “These latest lettings and international awards demonstrate how The Lexicon’s innovative urban design has enabled the Schroders Capital team to attract leading retail and F&B brands despite a challenging retail market nationally.

“The new recent lettings, along with several exciting new arrivals due to be announced later this year, combined with the plans to further enhance the centre and a host of regular community events will ensure The Lexicon remains a thriving retail destination which continues to attract people from across the Thames Valley and beyond.”

Lunson Mitchenall and CBRE are The scheme’s retained letting agents.
