Restaurant operators are being sought for St Katharine Docks as developers seek to turn the marina near Tower Bridge into a food and drink-led destination.
Max Property Group has invested £20m in redeveloping the site, which currently comprises 250 flats, 450,000sq ft of offices and 50,000sq ft of restaurants and shops. The company is aiming to turn it into a weekend destination for both Londoners and tourists.
Leisure property adviser David Coffer Lyons (DCL) has been appointed to source a range of concepts for the scheme's Ivory House as well as tenants for two larger A3 units.
"St Katharine Docks has always had great potential, but so far it has been unrealised. Prestbury is securing interesting new office tenants for the scheme. We want to extend that into the leisure offer, using the marina setting and bringing in some glamorous restaurants and bars," said Josh Leon, associate director at DCL.
Completion for the scheme is expected by September 2013 with many of the food and beverage units available before that.
