Carter Jonas, the national property consultancy, has secured planning permission on behalf of Lothbury Investment Management from Oxford City Council for a new shopfront at The Clarendon Oxford.
Facing onto Cornmarket Street, the new fully glazed contemporary shopfront is wall to ceiling height glass and sits flush to the main shopping centre frontage. The retail unit will now be occupied by fast food chain Tortilla, which replaces jewellery store H. Samuel.
Huw Mellor, partner, Carter Jonas, said: “We have undertaken various projects at The Clarendon Oxford as part of Lothbury’s proactive approach to the management of this important city centre asset. The new shopfront creates a crisp and sharp entrance to mark the arrival of Tortilla, but is still sensitive to Oxford’s historic surrounds.”
Adam Smith, director of Lothbury Investment Management, said: “Tortilla will bring an exciting new food offer to the Clarendon Centre and Oxford and we look forward to their opening at the beginning of October. They will trade from two levels and we are confident that they will be a popular addition for our visitors.”
The Clarendon Oxford is a 120,000 sq ft shopping centre in the heart of Oxford city centre. It comprises 33 retail, 4 office and 10 ancillary tenants with anchors including H&M and TK Maxx.
