Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is the largest interior-design, retail and trade centre in Europe (currently 150,000 sq ft), and forms part of the Chelsea Harbour Estate.
The Estate also includes 125,000 sq ft of office space, let to more than 100 independent businesses, a five-star hotel, an 80-berth marina, parking for 1,000 cars and 350 residential apartments. It was underperforming at the time of acquisition, but MARCOL identified substantial opportunities to increase rents and fill vacant space in surrounding offices.
MARCOL undertook the design and implementation of a multi-million-pound refurbishment, including the replacement of all internal surfaces and flooring, fitting glass balustrades throughout, refurbishing and repositioning the spiral staircases, installing an electronic way-finding system and opening Design Club, an exclusive private-members’ club offering design professionals a base in which to work, rest or entertain clients.
Described by Vogue as a ‘treasure trove’, by Vanity Fair as ‘the interior-design world’s Mecca’ and by House & Garden as ‘Europe’s flagship for design and decoration’, the Design Centre’s new status has led to a superb occupier set with a long waiting list of prospective tenants.
