LSH smashes 1 million sq ft retail milestone


Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) is celebrating smashing through the milestone of 1 million sq ft in shopping centre leasing instructions in the past year. 

The Birmingham Retail Team is working with major clients including London and Cambridge Properties, Fairacre and AEW Europe on projects across the Midlands region. These include major shopping centres in towns and cities such as Wolverhampton, West Bromwich and Peterborough. 
The milestone comes at a time of expansion for LSH’s Retail Team, with George Xydias recently joining from Pennycuick Collins as Senior Surveyor, as it continues to increase its presence throughout the Midlands and beyond. 

Significant growth across LSH

The success of the Retail Team coincides with a period of significant growth right across LSH, which earlier this year acquired ES Group and retail specialists Tushingham Moore.
Richard Jones, Head of Retail and Leisure at LSH in Birmingham, said: “It’s always nice to hit a major landmark like this and it demonstrates the buoyancy of the retail sector in the Midlands. 

“We’ve responded to the increased demand for high quality, experienced surveyors not only by adding to our team, but also by expanding the retail agency’s geographical reach. The team is now taking instructions as far afield as Cambridgeshire and South Wales.”
LSH has also been working on behalf of a number of major retailers on acquisitions including household names like Claire’s Accessories, JD Wetherspoon, and Nationwide Building Society. 
Richard added: “The signs are good that the next 12 months will be just as strong for the Midlands retail sector, and for LSH. For example, our team has recently taken instructions from Commture Ltd, the EE franchise for the Midlands, with a number of units under offer and at least 10 more stores required over the next year.”
