Next and River Island have signed pre-let agreements to open at The Lexicon in Bracknell, which is set to be complete by spring 2017.
Next has taken a 10-year lease on a three-floor 27,600 sq ft store, while River Island has taken a 10-year lease on a two-floor 11,200 sq ft store.
The Lexicon Bracknell is a 1m sq ft shopping and leisure destination in Bracknell town centre, of which 64% has already been pre-let. The new area will bring more than 60 stores and restaurants including Fenwick, Marks & Spencer, Primark and H&M, as well as Arcadia brands Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins and Burton.
Simon Russian, head of development of Bracknell of Legal & General Property, said: “The exciting pre-let to two of the UK’s major fashion retailers perfectly aligns with the wider purpose to attract major fashion brands to The Lexicon Bracknell and we now have real leasing momentum in the scheme with still over 18 months to go before opening.
“Through partnerships with influential brands we are confident that the scheme will redefine Bracknell’s identity and will provide residents and visitors a compelling shopping and leisure offer.”
