Anytime Fitness sprints into Dover St James

Anytime Fitness, the world’s largest 24-hour gym, has agreed a deal at the St James retail and leisure development in Dover, due to open in the first quarter of 2018.

Anytime Fitness has signed a new 15-year lease on a two-storey unit totalling 5,770 sq. ft. on the corner of Dolphin Passage.

This deal comes off the back of other recent lettings, including Superdrug which has also struck a deal to occupy the unit next to the M&S Foodhall. The 5,000 sq. ft. store has been taken on a 10-year lease.

The latest tenants take the scheme to in excess of 80% pre-let ahead of practical completion early in 2018.

St James, Dover totals 156,915 sq. ft. of retail and leisure space and is anchored by Marks & Spencer and Next. It features a six-screen Cineworld and 108-bed Travelodge, and includes two dozen shops and restaurants including Trespass, Poundland, Carphone Warehouse, Costa Coffee, Nando’s, Frankie & Benny’s and Bella Italia, as well as 445 parking spaces. 

St James, Dover is being developed by Bond City and has been funded by Legal & General Real Assets who committed £53.25m to acquire and fund the development last year. 

HRH Retail and JLL are joint letting agents for the development.
