DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR AT LAND SECURITIES
AFTER years in the making, I am very excited to introduce One New Change, the City of London’s newest and largest retail experience, as it opens at midday today.
Boasting 60 stores over three floors, One New Change offers something for everyone. Some of the UK’s most loved brands, including Topshop, H&M and Banana Republic, are making their City debuts here alongside independents, such as Bea’s of Bloomsbury and SumoSalad. Both are opening their doors for a second time in the UK at One New Change.
We are also thrilled to be joined by culinary greats, including Jamie Oliver and his business partner Adam Perry Lang. They will open a brand new concept restaurant, Barbecoa, in a breathtaking space on the first floor, which I hope you will treat yourself to.
One New Change is set to transform the City of London into a seven-day shopping and leisure destination, reawakening the City’s historical role as the retail heart of the capital.
But we are also at the forefront of retail innovation, shaping the future of shopping and dining. As well as a visual feast of cutting-edge design, many retailers at One New Change are experimenting with new technological concepts which make shopping more convenient for even the busiest of City workers.
By integrating smart technologies with customer service, soon you will be able to pre-order your coffee via smartphone or arrange the delivery of a pair of shoes from another branch of a store via iPad.
