Capital & Counties Properties is delighted to announce that luxury concept store, The Shop at Bluebird, has agreed terms to open in Carriage Hall on Covent Garden’s Floral Street.

The store will open its doors to shoppers in early 2018, with the 15,000 square foot space housing two dedicated retail floors and a large restaurant on the second floor.

This new signing is the latest addition to the street’s luxury tenants and will anchor the Western end of the street, opposite two new restaurant concepts from Petersham Nurseries within Floral Court. The Shop at Bluebird will join the forthcoming UK flagship store for Kent & Curwen – the men’s British heritage brand part owned by David Beckham – agnès B, Diptyque and Paul Smith.

The recent refurbishment of 19th century Grade II listed Carriage Hall represents the latest phase of the redevelopment of Floral Street. The conversion of Carriage Hall from office use to a unique and contemporary retail space includes a double height glass atrium, anchoring Floral Street.

Peter Ruis, CEO, The Jigsaw Group, commented: “The Shop at Bluebird is London’s foremost concept store. In Carriage Hall, and Covent Garden we have found the ultimate opportunity to take it to the next level. In a world full of mediocre, identikit shop concepts, the Shop at Bluebird will be a celebration of only the finest in luxury fashion, beauty, home, lifestyle and food. It will be an international destination for all those that seek excellence in retail.

Michelle McGrath, Director of Capco Covent Garden, commented: “The Shop at Bluebird is the perfect fit for Carriage Hall and Floral Street which is returning to its fashion and lifestyle roots. Their retail excellence and curated luxury will set the store apart and complements our vision for Covent Garden, where we are creating a differentiated lifestyle location for our visitors. Along with other British heritage brands such as Kent & Curwen and Paul Smith, the signing further enhances Floral Street as a world class address.”
