Longmartin Properties, a joint venture between Shaftesbury and The Mercers’ Company, has announced completion of the £10m refurbishment of 143 Long Acre – the gateway to Covent Garden.
There is a 4,000 sq ft retail opportunity on the ground floor, as well as five floors of new office space above. The retail space is set amongst a strong line-up of UK and international brands on Long Acre and neighbouring St Martin’s Courtyard, and a fitting brand is now being sought to take the unit.
Charles Owen, portfolio executive at Shaftesbury on behalf of Longmartin Properties, said: “Our significant investment in this project highlights our commitment to delivering a high-quality mixed-use space within the heart of Covent Garden. This redevelopment sets the benchmark for the future plans of the Longmartin Estate.
“All elements of the building have been carefully considered to complement the rich heritage within the area, while still delivering a statement retail and office space.”
