A superprime shopping and leisure destination in Kent, UK.
Bluewater is one of Europe's most innovative and successful shopping centre developments.
Now part of the LandSec portfolio, Bluewater was originally developed by Lendlease and opened on 19th March 1999; embodying and executing innovation across retail planning, customer experience, design and community engagement.
The retail delivery approach challenged the development's 325 original tenants to integrate the Bluewater brand experience with their own, with 321 units trading successfully on opening day.
Vindico provided a retail delivery strategy, design, management and onsite solution for Bluewater.
Engaging directly with the property's teams and processes through instruction on the delivery of key lettings, we built a working knowledge that supported a strategic review of Lendlease Europe's retail delivery infrastructure.
We enjoyed returning to Bluewater, to help consolidate an industry defining development's ongoing leadership role in Europe's retail real estate landscape.
