Hammerson poaches Westfield staff (unlike raw egg on its face at Brent Cross)

'Shopping Centre'

"Hammerson has appointed Iain Mitchell as UK commercial director. He has over 20 years of retail-real estate experience at Healey & Baker, Dalgleish, CBRE and most recently Westfield, where he has played a major role in Westfield's leasing activities at Westfield Derby and Stratford City.

"... Chief executive David Atkins said:
"As we look to increase our engagement with both existing and prospective retailers, [even at Brent Cross?] and capitalise on opportunities which arise as a result of the way in which consumers use retail space, Iain's experience and approach will prove hugely beneficial to Hammerson."



'The Yard Creative':
"Hammerson - Helping this global landlord create exciting retail destinations" 


"Appointed via a recommendation, TYC were asked by this global landlord to come up with concept designs for two food and beverage units in order to create desirable destinations in the Oracle shopping centre, Reading, to help entice new tenants.
"The units had been empty for some time following unsuccessful concepts, the spaces were far from ideal with location and customer flow very much against them."
"The most intelligently thought through work we have seen for this unit. It shows a good understanding what is needed both in terms of commerciality and design statement."
Peter Cooper, Portfolio Director, Hammerson plc

EastLondonLines: "Irish loan sale could be key to control of Whitgift"

Rival developers are eying an Irish debt sale that could see one of them secure a majority stake in Croydon’s Whitgift Centre.

Hammerson and Westfield have been in a standoff over the future of the mall since last year, but could be offered control if an Irish bank chooses to sell a loan secured against a 50% share.
