Designer independent Dover Street Market is to relocate to the former Burberry headquarters in Haymarket in London’s West End, the company’s chief executive Adrian Joffe has confirmed to WWD.com.
The luxury fashion concept store owned by Rei Kawakubo of Japanese brand Comme de Garçons currently occupies 17-18 Dover Street, owned by Lord Alan Sugar’s property company Amsprop.
Property Week reported that following a review, the retailer is in the final stages of agreeing a deal to move to 33,000 sq ft of the 36,500 sq ft unit at 18-22 Haymarket, also owned by Amsprop.
Joffe told WWD that the store will be “relocating to Haymarket” at the end of 2015 but declined to give further details.
Burberry vacated the building in 2007.
Los Angeles lifestyle brand James Perse signed for a flagship store at 30a Dover Street in October and Victoria Beckham opened a store at 36 Dover Street on September 25.
Dover Street Market declined to comment.
