Surbiton – New High Street Letting to Pret a Manger

IMG_5077 (002)_edited.jpg

AGL were instructed at the height of Covid to find a solution for a dilapidated and run down retail unit in a prime location on Surbiton High Street and opposite the station.


The building in it’s current configuration didn’t work for most occupiers so we engaged with the Landlord and architects to look to extend the unit and ensure it’s long term viability.


After a number of local and independent brands expressed an interest.  Terms were agreed with Pret a Manger in the middle of 2021 and following works by the landlord to extend the property, Pret a Manger are now opening for trade and doing exceptionally well. 

Finchley Road

AGL were instructed by the long lease holder, Sainsburys, to find a solution to a 40,000 sq.ft. former Sainsburys now let to Iceland whose lease was coming to expiry and provide a solution to what could have been a huge income shortfall for the supermarket group. 


Rather than go down the traditional retail route, AGL came up with a list of leisure occupiers and after three rounds of best bids, Pure Gym were confirmed as the new occupier - all this happened during Covid. 


After a long period of dealing with Camden Council and trying to get the freeholders approvals in place, Pure Gym are now onsite and fitting out in what is to be their largest gym in a London suburbs and will be open in the summer of 2022.
