Retail

"Covent Garden has bloomed into a lifestyle destination offering a plethora of fashion and beauty brands alongside a series of restaurants and other places to eat."

WWD, May 2016

The Vision

Capco’s vision for Covent Garden is to maximise the estate’s potential by transforming the retail mix and reinvigorating the district whilst maintaining the character of the area.

The opening of the world’s largest Apple store at the time in August 2010 was a milestone in the evolution of the neighbourhood which continues with positive momentum generated through Capco’s proactive asset management strategy.

Recent openings include the UK’s leading independent luxury watch retailer, The Watch Gallery, and British lifestyle brand, Mulberry, in the Royal Opera House Arcade, while fine British shoe brand Cheaney recently opened a store in Henrietta Street. The Beauty Quarter also continues to expand, with Tom Ford and DECIEM recently signed to the Market Building, and a pop-up store from Giorgio Armani Beauty, Armani Box, recently opened, joining premium standalone beauty boutiques from Chanel, Dior and Burberry Beauty Box.
