The Princesshay Partnership, comprising The Crown Estate and TH Real Estate, has submitted an outline planning application to Exeter City Council for a circa £70 million (approx. €99.6 mln) redevelopment of Exeter’s bus and coach station.
The plans include over 180,000 ft² (approx. 16,722 m²) of new restaurants, cafes and shops as well as a new cinema and a substantial new public space in the form of an amphitheatre. The scheme is designed to complement the existing successful retail and leisure offer at Princesshay, which includes leading brands such as Topshop, Topman, River Island, New Look, Apple, Joules and Fat Face, as well as restaurants like Carluccios, Byron and Jamie’s Italian.
John Grinnell, speaking on behalf of the Princesshay Partnership said: “As the region’s best shopping and leisure scheme, Princesshay is a fantastic asset for the city and we’re committed to improving it even further, whether that’s by bringing in great new brands and restaurants, or working with the council to regenerate the bus station site.
“It’s an extremely complex project and there’s still a long way to go in planning and design terms, but we’re really pleased to submit an outline application, which is an important step in unlocking the true potential of this gateway to Exeter.”
The partnership held a public consultation on its initial proposals last November at the former Blue Wing Gallery at Princesshay which saw 76% of people agree that the scheme was a good thing for the city and a majority of respondents welcome the opportunity for an enhanced restaurant and leisure offer.
The Partnership’s strategy for Princesshay includes investing to improve public spaces, enhancing the food and beverage offer, and continuing to bring in new high quality retailers to boost the shopping offer.

Thor Equities and London-based Meyer Bergman have officially unveiled the revamped Burlington Arcade in London with a $15.6 mln (approx. €14.24 mln) restoration of the historic covered street.
The 19th century shopping arcade had received new flooring earlier this month designed by British architect Jamie Fobert, who specializes in historic renovations. The Arcade now features beautiful stone floors sourced from English quarries, as well as restored original details including the building’s grand upper arches.
“The Burlington Arcade has been heralded as a historic and architectural masterpiece ever since it was first unveiled to great acclaim in 1819,” said Joseph Sitt, CEO of Thor Equities. “With this magnificent redesign, the Arcade will remain a treasured London destination for generations to come.”
Renovation work on the arcade has been carried out in phases by Meyer Bergman and Thor Equities since they acquired the property in 2010, including renovations on the ceilings, lighting, and a new art installation. In 2014, the Arcade welcomed a string of Chanel-owned labels including swim and lingerie label Eres, watchmaker Bell & Ross, milliner Maison Michel, and knit label Barrie. They joined a roster of established retailers including Ladurée, Vilebrequin, Harrys of London, Lulu Guinness, and Church’s.
The longest covered shopping street in the United Kingdom, the Burlington Arcade unites Piccadilly and Bond Streets in the heart of Mayfair. With approximately 37,000 ft² (approx. 3,437 m²) of retail space and a combined frontage of over 1,100 feet (approx. 335 m), the Arcade attracts over 4 million visitors a year.

PATRIZIA France has acquired a 3,700 m² office building of high environmental qualities (certified BREEAM in use “very good”) in the Léopold district, Brussels´ central business quarter. The building currently accommodates prestigious tenants such as Fly Emirates, Allianz and a Beobank agency. The seller is Banimmo. The purchase price will not be disclosed.
PATRIZIA has been following the Belgian market closely for a long time. Bruno Cohen, who together with Silvio Estienne is managing director of PATRIZIA France, says: “Belgium is a mature market, with longer leasing periods compared to France and with business tenants of high quality both from the public and private sectors. Notably a high number of international corporations have set up their European headquarters in Brussels.”
Nevertheless, it would be misleading to think that this market is easier to enter than the Parisian market or the rest of France: “This market is very competitive. Therefore, knowing the key players is a requirement”, Silvio Estienne adds.
The seller Banimmo is a specialist for heavy renovations and building constructions responding to the best technical criteria and provided with BREEAM or analogue certification. The asset was completely rebuilt and renovated by Banimmo, then leased again. Both parties worked together with a partnership spirit throughout the whole off-market transaction process, from early discussions to closing. Cohen: “Mutual agreements between both parties led to a successful outcome and a willingness to continue working together on future deals.”
The Paris-based branch of PATRIZIA is responsible for the French and Belgium market. “We are very satisfied that we were able to secure this acquisition in Brussels. This has proved that our strategy – locally as international is well perceived. Therefore, we are looking forward to all upcoming transactions.”

SEB Asset Management has signed a 15-year lease with the Hungarian government for 6,100 m² of space in the Central Udvar office building at Wesselenyi Street 16 in Budapest. The government will make the space available exclusively to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). UNICEF is planning to set up a new Global Shared Services Centre in the building, bundling a large part of its global financial and human resources activities.
Around 350 employees will provide a variety of administrative services such as invoice processing and IT services for all UNICEF offices worldwide from Budapest.
This leasing success means that SEB Asset Management has signed the largest new lease on the Budapest market in the year to date. AddVal and DTZ acted as leasing agents. AddVal played a leading role in supporting SEB Asset Management during the lease negotiations and was also responsible for planning the rental space and the office fittings.
The four-building complex is in a prominent location in the middle of Budapest’s historic old town and has around 16,600 m² of rental space. In 2013, one of the four office buildings was converted into a high-quality hostel, since it had been standing vacant. SEB Asset Management signed a ten-year lease with the operator Maverick Hostel for the 1,370 m² of rental space in September 2013.
After a major tenant moved out of the office complex last year, the building underwent extensive modernisation. Among other things, structural alterations were made to the inner courtyards and the entrance halls and a new facade was added. Following this, the building was repositioned on the market under the name “Central Udvar”, a move that has been highly successful.
The property will be over 90% let once UNICEF moves in. Other new tenants include well-known companies such as GfK, the economic research company, and advertising agency McCann Erickson, who in total account for over 2,000 m² of space.
