Even though retail is changing, people are not deserting cities — if anything it's the opposite. Customers are looking for an all-round visitor experience; the importance of an integrated Leisure offer is now increasingly important.

The FHP Leisure Team is one of the most active in the East Midlands. We have been responsible for a whole variety of developments in and around the East Midlands, but we are best known for our development and leasing advice on The Cornerhouse in Nottingham, now owned by Land Securities.

Our experience provides us with the knowledge of letting and acquisition of bars, restaurants, cinemas, hotels, drive-thrus, coffee shops, health and fitness clubs and casinos.

We advise on standalone leisure schemes, such as the Cornerhouse, Nottingham; Baxter Gate, Loughborough; the leisure element of retail parks such as East Point, Nottingham; and the growing leisure offer within Shopping Centres. We are currently advising Intu on the leisure strategy for their East Midlands assets, which include Intu Victoria Centre, Nottingham, Intu Derby and the redevelopment of the Intu Broadmarsh Centre, Nottingham.

Lettings have recently been concluded with Bills, Reds True Barbeque, Wildwood, Barburrito, Prezzo, Las Iguanas, Byron, Zizzi, YO! Sushi, Georges Great British Kitchen, Carluccios, Cote, Hockley Arts Club, Roxy Ballroom, Mojo, The Brooklyn Social and MEXIco.
