Oxford Properties, advised by Gillingham Bell International, have let their flagship restaurant and events space, the Kaisersaal at The Sony Center in Berlin to international restaurant and events group Rhubarb Hospitality Company (RHC).   Rhubarb, who currently operate major restaurant and events venues in London and New York, are on site fitting out the 2,200 sq m (23,000 sq ft) space and it is scheduled to open in early 2022.

The Kaisersaal letting to this renowned global F&B group represents a key anchor letting as part of Oxford’s redevelopment and renovation of the 1.2m sq ft (112,000 sq m) Sony Center at the heart of Berlin’s commercial district and will be followed by further lettings to international and local restaurant, retail and leisure operators.

Nigel Gillingham of Gillingham Bell International said: “We have built a very strong relationship with the team at Oxford Properties over the last few years following working with them and their partners on Hudson Yards in New York where we brought leading London restaurants to that project including  D&D London and are very proud to be part of their incredible team working on regenerating The Sony Centre in Berlin – one of the most impressive and iconic global mixed use projects that will continue the return of Berlin as one of the world’s greatest cities.

“We also have a very longstanding relationship with the Rhubarb Group and worked with them on securing their first site in New York – The Peak; one of the highest restaurants in the western hemisphere and are very excited to have brought them to The Sony Center in Berlin as one of the anchor tenants.  Working with Robert Angell International Design – RHC will create one of the largest and most exciting new restaurant concepts in Berlin’s continuing regeneration and we are currently in discussion with further very exciting restaurant, leisure and retail concepts from the US, UK and Europe.”

Jay Drexler of Oxford Properties said: “Nigel and his team have a strong understanding for Oxford’s customer-led approach to asset management and how to connect the very best operators with world-class real estate. We look forward to continuing to work with Gillingham Bell across our global portfolio.”
