Property News - Young designers join Kingly Court

Shaftesbury has attracted more than 20 retailers to its Kingly Court scheme off Carnaby Street in London's West End.

Shaftesbury targeted young designers and retailers with short- to medium-term flexible leases. To ease the process for those that had not opened a shop before, the 30 units, from 250 sq ft (25 sq m) upwards, were partially fitted out.

Already trading are Carbon, High Jinks, Puma, Ben Sherman, Henri-Lloyd, Sam Greenberg and The Kingly Club. Vans is due to open in December.

Remaining units are available at rents from£10,000 a year, including service charge.
