Seasalt and Joules have opened within the former Co-op which has been developed as part of the Oyster Wharf scheme in Mumbles, one of Wales’ most famous seaside destinations. Overlooking Swansea Bay, the £5.5m mixed use seafront regeneration scheme by Nextcolour Developments has seen the rejuvenation of the historic Art Deco Tivoli building and adjoining shopping arcades. Leisure operators at the fully occupied scheme are Croeso Lounge, Prezzo, Le Bistrot Pierre and rooftop restaurant La Parrilla.

Cooke & Arkwright’s Retail & Leisure Agency acted for the landlord in securing pre-lets to Seasalt and Joules when the former Co-op premises were being converted into two retail units. Surveyor Ian Newbury said, “It’s a great location and Seasalt and Joules provide a real boost to the retail mix in Mumbles. The restaurants at Oyster Wharf also make a great contribution to the leisure scene and the whole development is attracting more visitors to the area.”

Cooke & Arkwright’s Property Management team are retained as managing agents for the Oyster Wharf scheme.

E J Hales advised Joules on the acquisition.

I have worked with Jeremy Symons over the past three years successfully leasing and buying property in support of my business. I continue to be very pleased with his knowledge of the market and expertise. Our relationship over this time has resulted in acquiring 20,000 sq ft at Capital Business Park in Cardiff, leasing 11,000 sq ft at Southpoint, and subsequently leasing an initial 42,000 sq ft at Parc Bedwas, followed by a succession of expansions of a further 11,000 and then 47,000 sq ft, enabling us to centralise all of our operations at Parc Bedwas in a single 100,000 sq ft facility. The acquisitions were completed at the perfect time for tenant purposes and the rent fixed throughout the term at very economical rates. A job well done.
