Two restaurant lettings bring Chatham Waterside to 100% occupancy

12th September 2023 | Jack Oliver

Chatham Waterside in Kent has secured two lettings to restaurant chains Wagamama and Zizzi, bringing the scheme’s occupancy rate to 100%.

Wagamama will be taking a 3,229 sq ft unit whilst Zizzi will occupy a 3,552 sq ft space, both on 15-year leases.

The new arrivals at the Medway waterfront scheme follows a busy period for the destination, which has welcomed well-known names such as Costa Coffee, Kaspas, and Ninja Warrior UK over recent months.

Acquired by Schroders in 2013, the 123,000 sq ft Chatham Waterside is home to leisure operators such as Odeon, PureGym, Gymfinity Kids, as well as food and beverage staples such as Nando’s, Subway, and Pizza Hut.

Eleanor Jukes, Schroders Capital UK Real Estate Fund’s portfolio manager, said: “Wagamama and Zizzi are strong additions to Chatham Waterside that will be popular with the local community, drive footfall and complement the existing tenant mix. The nature of both the brands is testament to the quality of the scheme and marks the completion of the transformation of Chatham Waterside following the closure of themed attraction Dickens World.”

KLM Real Estate and Bruce Gillingham Pollard are the retained leasing agents for Chatham Waterside.
