Grosvenor Europe has announced the appointment of a revised leasing team for Liverpool ONE, the multi-award-winning mixed-use destination in the heart of Liverpool. CBRE is to act on the retail leasing, with Savills on the F&B and leisure leasing, both working alongside incumbent, Metis Real Estate.
Commenting on the revised team, Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor Europe, said: “To maintain Liverpool ONE’s success, it is imperative we have the right team to help navigate through the significant changes the industry is facing. The experience, reach and passion demonstrated by CBRE, Savills and Metis is the perfect combination to maintain Liverpool ONE’s long-term success and vitality.”
Mark Disney, Executive Director, Retail, CBRE, added: “Liverpool ONE is one of the best-known and highly regarded mixed-use destinations in Europe. Its positive impact on the region, and UK industry as a whole, is well-documented and we are delighted to be part of the team to move it forward even further.”
David Bell, Director of Leisure at Savills, also said: “Liverpool ONE is a thriving destination that plays a key role in the wider appeal of the city centre. Vital to that is the mix of F&B and leisure it provides, which create additional reasons to visit and attract an incredibly broad cross-section of consumers, from residents, to domestic tourists and international visitors. Outside London, there is probably no better opportunity location for F&B operators than Liverpool ONE.”
Steve Tregenza, co-founder of Metis, further commented: “We have been involved in Liverpool ONE since before construction began, and retaining our brief across all aspects of the leasing is a very proud moment for the business. We will work alongside CBRE and Savills, complementing their expertise with our unique understanding of the destination, the city, and the strong regional operators for whom Liverpool ONE is perfect.”
In the first three months of this year, a number of leading UK and international brands signed for new stores at Liverpool ONE, including MAC Cosmetics, Penhaligon’s, Kiehl’s, Virgin Holidays for its largest store in the UK, and premium British sportswear pioneer, Castore. The latter will open its first store outside of London at Liverpool ONE later this year.
