The new 580,000 sq ft shopping and leisure center will open in September 2017.Pandora leads a host of significant new lettings at The Lexicon Bracknell, choosing to open one of its high-quality jewelry stores on The Avenue, The Lexicon’s premium shopping street. Taking an entirety of 1,389 sq ft, the new store will showcase Pandora’s range of gold, silver and diamond jewelry, including its customizable charm bracelets.
The Avenue will be home to high-end fashion brands, and Pandora will join the likes of Beaverbrooks and Fat Face on the pedestrianized thoroughfare. The street links The Lexicon’s two anchor stores: the first new build, full line Fenwick store for 14 years covering 80,000 sq ft over three levels, and a two storey, 80,000 sq ft Marks & Spencer.
The Lexicon has further boosted its style credentials with the signing of fashion brand New Look, which will be taking 11,750 sq ft, to showcase its women’s and men’s clothing ranges. New Look will be joined by makeup and skincare brand KIKO Milano in a new 990 sq ft store. New Look and KIKO will be located on Braccan Walk where they will join high street favorites such as River Island, Topshop and Primark.
Once open, The Lexicon Bracknell, with 580,000 sq ft of retail, restaurant and leisure space, will give a new social and cultural heart for Berkshire. It will more than double the square footage of the current retail offer, taking the total to one million sq ft, including the existing, neighboring Princess Square shopping center.
With less than a year to go until opening, some 70 per cent, by floor space of The Lexicon is now pre-let or in solicitors’ hands, with a further 68,000 sq ft in negotiations.
