Leading London property investment company, LabTech, has announced the signing of 10 F&B brands covering over 5,000 sq ft at Hawley Wharf Camden.
Following the announcements of a 6,000 sq ft Curzon cinema and 1,175 sq ft eco-conscious hairdresser’s from Butchers Salon, this represents the first group of F&B-focused signings at Hawley Wharf Camden, the emerging 580,000 sq ft mixed-use canal-side development.
Bringing a Cantonese flavour to Hawley Wharf Camden will be Bun House and Three Uncles, the former serving both sweet and savoury steamed buns, and the latter their take on classic dishes such as roast duck and char siu pork. Rounding off the Southeast Asian offer is Ekachai and BaoziInn, covering Thai and Malaysian, and Taiwanese, staples respectively.
Farm-to-table grill brand Mikos Gyros will be serving the archetypal Greek filled pitta, alongside halloumi chips; and they will be joined by compatriots Stilvi, the Greek dessert specialists, whose menu includes well-known items such as baklava and loukoumades as well as other national favourite sweets. The Mediterranean offer is rounded off by A’do’re Fritto, the Italian grab-and-go brand serving famous fried delicacies such as arancini, together with pizzas cooked fresh-to-order in the dedicated pizza oven.
Revered French pastry chef Philippe Conticini will be opening a dedicated production kitchen and café, supplying the brand’s existing Camden Market and Buck Street Market outlets, while combining traditional patisserie with his innovative and modern creations. Specialist drinks will also be on offer at Hawley Wharf, from nutritious, cold-pressed juice brand Juice Junkiez, and Amar Café – the Colombian coffee roaster that famously started selling caffeine drinks in disused London telephone boxes.
Commenting on the signing, Jonny Perkins, Retail Asset Manager at LabTech said: “A complete and modern destination like Hawley Wharf Camden needs a strong and diverse F&B offer, and collectively these deals represent a significant step forward in ensuring we achieve this. By selecting brands for this part of the development that understand Camden and London, all with experience in quality grab-and-go products, we hope to create a varied and exciting dining environment for our visitors.”
Bordered by Chalk Farm Road to the west and Regent’s Canal to the east, with a prime frontage on Camden High Street, Hawley Wharf Camden’s canal-side development is set to be a major attraction in North London, serving Camden’s 30 million visitors a year, equivalent to around 80,000 visitors every day prior to lockdown.
