With our knowledge of the wider commercial sector, we provide advice on alternative use opportunities.
We have been particularly active advising owners of public houses and hotel sites with regard to Higher Alternative Use Value (HAUV) and help determine disposal strategies for landowners to drive maximum value from their assets by liaising with planners, contractors, neighbouring land owners, funders and occupiers.
Our involvement in leisure and roadside schemes has increased markedly where uses include retail, restaurants, gyms, cinemas, fast food and family dining operations, for example:
- Gemini Retail Park, Warrington (72 bed Travelodge, Starbucks, Harvester, Frankie & Benny’s etc)
- Nandos, Peel Park, Stockport (site acquisition, letting and investment advisory)
- The Junction, Hanley. Leisure development including Nando and TGI Friday’s
Providing advice to landowners and developers involved with masterplanning leisure sites, in relation to potential tenant’s requirements such as parking, servicing and outside areas.
Having knowledge of who is in the market and which retailers complement each other, we can quickly identify potential tenants to secure a workable line up from both a development and trading point of view.
Wider scope of activity includes viability studies and funding discussions, as well as sales and leasing advice.
