London and Continental Railways (LCR) has signed up three flagship tenants to its Leake Street Arches retail scheme below Waterloo station.
Three flagship tenants take units at Waterloo scheme

Italian craft beer pub The Italian Job will open its first central London venue at the 23,250 sq ft scheme, following its debut in Chiswick.
The second tenant is 175-capacity music venue Aures, which claims to be the UK’s first custom-built acoustic event space.
Squint Opera, the operator of the Doodle Bar in Bermondsey, will also take a unit, for what it describes as “a collaboration between London’s most exciting chefs, artists, musicians and producers”.
Opening in the summer
LCR is also close to signing a French bistro, which hopes to launch its first London restaurant at the scheme when it opens in the summer.
“It’s exciting to work with such unique brands and to contribute to the regeneration of the area by opening up unused spaces,” said Duko Frankhuizen, development manager at LCR.
The arches were formerly home to a bonded whisky warehouse and are located next to London’s largest legal graffiti wall in the Leake Street Tunnel. They are part of the wider 135,000 sq ft redevelopment of the former Eurostar platforms at Waterloo by LCR, the Department for Transport and Network Rail.
Union Street Partners advised LCR on the signings.
