Liverpool's Metquarter gets new owners

Queensberry Real Estate and Bywater Properties have teamed up to acquire Liverpool’s Metquarter shopping centre from Columbus UK Real Estate Fund.

This is the second joint acquisition for the two companies after their purchase of the Kingsway Centre in Newport.

Metquarter comprises 129,102 square feet of retail and restaurant space across 44 units over the ground and first floors. Situated in Liverpool city centre, the scheme is housed in the Castle Street Conservation Area, fronting on to Whitechapel, Liverpool’s traditional high street.

Queensberry Real Estate will act as asset manager and developer of the site on behalf of the joint owners.

Paul Sargent, chief executive and co-founder of Queensberry Real Estate said: “We look forward to extending our successful working relationship with Bywater Properties at Metquarter. Our joint business plan seeks to reposition the Metquarter as a premium dining and retail destination within the city, carrying on our great relationship with restaurant operators that have worked with us at the Corn Exchange, Manchester and Tunsgate Square, Guildford.

“The main objective is to convert the north-west end of the property into A3 use and attract a high quality cluster of restaurants with an all day and evening offer. This in turn will complement the existing retail offer, which includes Jack Wills, Armani Exchange, Hugo Boss and Jo Malone among others.”

Theo Michell, principal of Bywater Properties, added: “The acquisition of the MetQuarter is an exciting project in a market where we have long standing connections. We are delighted to be working once again with the Queensberry Real Estate team on such a transformational project.”
