James Boyd-Phillips, head of retail, LaSalle Investment Management, said: “Situated in one of Scotland’s major retail destinations, Livingston Designer Outlet has the fundamentals to continue to be a thriving centre, supported by our asset management strategy. This is a strong asset which will enhance the breadth of our portfolio.”
Ashley Blake, director of retail portfolio management at Land Securities, added: “The sale of our ground lease interest in the DOC Livingston fits our strategy of recycling capital and reinvesting in assets where we have management control and the ability to pro-actively add value.”
Livingston is situated 18 miles west of Edinburgh on route to Glasgow just off the M8 and A71.
