CBRE Investment Management celebrates a trio of signings and openings – Oseyo, Joe & The Juice and Black Sheep Coffee – across neighbouring retail and leisure destinations, Hammersmith Broadway and Fulham Broadway.
The largest Korean retailer in the UK, Oseyo, has selected Hammersmith Broadway to launch its newest Korean Food and Culture Hub as part of its expansion plans within London. The 1,251 sq ft space is located opposite Boots opened on 30th December. Oseyo focuses on all elements of Korean culture and is revolutionising what it means to be a high-quality supermarket. The Food and Culture Hub will stock Asian foods, toys, stationery, Korean homewares and electronics, as well as popular commodities such as Korean cosmetics.
Oseyo joins the recent opening of the popular juice bar and coffee shop, Joe & The Juice, at Hammersmith Broadway, located in a 1,244 sq ft space on the entrance to the scheme opposite Starbucks. Both deals add to the dining and grab & go offer at the destination.
Completing the trio is new signing, Black Sheep Coffee, innovators in the coffee industry with cafés, kiosks and cocktail bars across the globe. Opening in early 2022, brand has signed for a prime 800 sq ft kiosk in the central atrium of Fulham Broadway. Like Joe & The Juice at Hammersmith Broadway, Black Sheep Coffee will appeal to commuters, office workers and shoppers alike, given both centres’ location above key transport hubs and residential areas.
Commenting on the trio of signings and openings, Louisa Butters, Head of UK Retail Asset Management at CBRE Investment Management, said: “We are always seeking to provide communities surrounding these central London retail destinations with a broad and high-quality offer. Together, these new cafés and specialist Korean supermarket highlight our commitment to delivering brands that are relevant and interesting to our consumers. Dining and grab & go remains a growing area of demand, so we are pleased to welcome such a strong line-up of brands to these important and busy hubs.”
Isaac Kweon, Operations Coordinator at Oseyo, added: “Due to the location and visitor numbers, we identified Hammersmith as a key area in our expansion plans. We are delighted to be able to bring our full range of specialist Korean food, lifestyle products and toys to this part of London, providing something unique compared to a typical supermarket and grocery store.”
