Angel Welcomes Jamie’s Italian
26 May 2011
Derwent London is pleased to announce that Jamie’s Italian has taken a 7,900 sq ft retail unit at the recently completed Angel Building, 407 St. John Street, London EC1. Jamie’s Italian will occupy the largest retail unit at the building, located on the corner of St. John Street and Pentonville Road, on a 25-year lease with no breaks.
Jamie’s Italian aims to serve exceptional food in an environment with a “neighbourhood” feel and is designed to be accessible and affordable. It fits well with the contemporary design of the Angel Building and will assist with the regeneration of the neighbourhood, bringing life and vitality to the streetscape.
With office lettings already completed to Cancer Research UK and NG Bailey, and with a significant amount of space under offer, the occupancy rate at the Angel Building could soon rise to 90%.
Simon Silver, Head of Strategic Regeneration at Derwent London, commented: “We are delighted to welcome such a well-known restaurant to the Angel Building and we believe that Jamie’s Italian will provide an excellent facility to both our tenants and to the local community.”
Simon Blagden, Group Managing Director of Jamie Oliver Restaurants, said: “The site on the corner of the Angel Building is perfect for the Jamie’s Italian collection in London and we’re looking forward to making it one of our most beautifully designed restaurants.”
Shelley Sandzer and CB Richard Ellis acted as agents for Derwent London and Graeme Wait represented Jamie Oliver Restaurants.
