Hurlingham Polo takes space on King Street

Dan Whelan

The sports fashion brand has agreed a five-year lease on 48 King Street, a 4,000 sq ft unit within DTZ Investors’ Manchester retail scheme.

The opening of its store falls in line with Hurlingham Polo’s debut autumn and winter fashion collection for 2020 by designer Bardhyl Latifi, who has previously designed collections for Burberry and Henri Lloyd.

Hurlingham Polo will join several other luxury national brands on King Street, including The White Company, Vivienne Westwood and Jigsaw.

Tom Royston, investment manager at DTZ Investors, said: “It is really positive to see Hurlingham Polo sign a lease at King Street in what has been a turbulent time for the retail industry.

“We have been developing the King Street brand and have brought a completely fresh approach to the street with our schedule of creative pop-ups, working closely with tenants and landlords to ensure a collective benefit for both.”

DTZ Investors was represented by consultancies LTL Property and Orme Property. Hurlingham Polo was unrepresented.

In June, the White Company, which occupies 21-23 King Street extended its lease for a further five years.

DTZ Investors owns 22 units on King Street, including 8 King Street, a nine-unit block fronting Deansgate that the investor bought for £8.65m from Edge Real Estate Property Investments in 2018.
