Furthermore, a site in the Square Mile in London is another development the company is waiting to confirm. The plans are currently altered due to the Greater London Authority not giving them approval last year.

David Atkins, Hammerson’s chief executive, said, even with the current economic uncertainty, with the company’s high end shopping centre portfolio and by remaining the shop vacancy rate low at less than 3 per cent, it had been able to attract retailer businesses. As a result, the company’s income from rents increased by 8.8 per cent to £346.5 million between 2015 and 2016.
