Elephant Park announces latest community signings
Lendlease’s Elephant Park in south London has seen the opening of Elephant Stores, a 3,000 square foot unit occupied by local brands Little Louie, SoLo Craft Fair and Fix Your Cycle.
In addition, the space has been furnished, with all items for sale, by Vintage Matters.
Elephant Stores overlooks the new two-acre park within Zone One of London. In a statement, Lendlease said the space has been fitted from shell as a pop-up to encourage a wider range of uses for new businesses and community-focused offers at Elephant Park.
Guy Thomas, head of place assets at Lendlease, explained: “Pre-fitting in the manner we have has made the process of attracting more diverse operators easier, cheaper and faster, and for a young business this can make the difference in enabling them to take a physical space.
“Lendlease has an ongoing commitment to securing a complete and varied mix of operators within Elephant Park, focusing on those that understand the local area and its community. Having Little Louie, SoLo, Fix Your Cycle and Vintage Matters is another great step for Elephant Park, and one that delivers perfectly on our community-first objective.”
Lendlease has also announced the marketing of the latest phase of retail on Chatteris Quarter at Elephant Park. The units are open to retail, wellbeing, leisure or creative businesses that have a base in south London.
Chris Greenwood of Little Louie said: “Elephant Park is the perfect location to expand our brand in South London. The shared white-box space offered by Lendlease is a brilliant way to come together with other independents and will create a fresh customer experience whilst championing local brands, adding to Elephant Park’s unique community spirit.”
