Director | Head of Central London Restaurants
Josh Leon leads the restaurant specialism within the Central London Agency Team. He is a hugely experienced agent, broker and advisor with over 16 years of experience in this niche sector. He advises many of London’s leading developers, estates and fund managers on converting, developing and curating property for Food and Drink use. His familiarity with technical, planning and licensing matters and his ambitious and visionary approach to tenant mix strategy are sought after by developers in the early phases of a project, but his main point of difference is his connectivity - the relationships he has within and around the restaurant business and the direct access he has to a wide range of high profile and successful operators both in London and globally.
Josh advises many of the world’s top restaurateurs on their expansion or disposal options in London and brokers deals on their behalf. He is retained by the Crown Estate to advise on the Food and Drink offer in their flagship mixed use development in St James’s, London.
