Bristol’s 1 million sq ft (92,900 sq m) city centre development Cabot Circus has signed 10 high-end retailers.

Fashion retailers Urban Outfitters, G-Star, French Connection, Fat Face, All Saints and Puma have signed, as well as accessories retailers Oakley and Radley. They are joined by two independent retailers from Bath: Bloomsbury and Ellis & Killpartrick.

The£500 million development – a joint venture between Land Securities and Hammerson – is anchored by House of Fraser and Harvey Nichols. The scheme has two main retail sections: Quakers Friars and The Circus.

Land Securities leasing director Keith Stone said the leasing programme is ahead of schedule and there has been a good level of interest from retailers. He added: “Bristol has been significantly undershopped. It’s a very affluent and prosperous region. There are a lot of retailers you would expect to be in Bristol that are not.”

Urban Outfitters has taken a 14,000 sq ft (1,300 sq m) store on Cabot Circus’ Concorde Street, which the developer wants to turn into the Carnaby Street of the southwest. Joining Urban Outfitters will be Oakley with a 2,800 sq ft (260 sq m) unit, Puma with a 3,300 sq ft (305 sq m) store and G-Star with a 4,000 sq ft (370 sq m) shop.

All Saints will open a 3,800 sq ft (355 sq m) store at Quakers Friars, alongside Radley’s 800 sq ft (75 sq m) outlet and French Connection’s and Fat Face’s 4,000 sq ft (370 sq m) units. Independent gifts retailer Bloomsbury will open an 800 sq ft (75 sq m) shop and eyewear specialist Ellis & Killpartrick will open a 2,800 sq ft (260 sq m) store.

The scheme will open in autumn. DTZ and Lunson Mitchenall are the letting agents.
