Former Vernon Pools call centre in Aintree sold

The former Vernon Pools call centre in Aintree has been sold to Guernsey based Jolivet Investments for an undisclosed fee.

The 30,757 sq ft Fortune House will now be extensively re-configured and re-furbished following further investment by the buyer.

The building was formerly the home of Vernon Pools and latterly was used as a call centre for Ladbrokes.

Andrew Littler, acting for Jolivet, says: “This is another strategic acquisition for commercial regeneration specialists Jolivet.

“The intention is to refurbish the property to create a high quality business unit providing much needed commercial space to accommodate business growth.”

Phil Morley of LM6, which sold the building on behalf of St James’s Street Property Management Limited, adds: “The purchase is an endorsement of the local industrial market where Jolivet Investments have completed a series of successful refurbishments in the Liverpool City Region.

“Following the programmed works the scheme will offer much needed quality, warehousing which will be available to lease or buy at £4.75 per sq ft or £ 1.7 million respectively.”

The vendor was advised by LM6 and Cushman & Wakefield. Littler and Associates acted for Jolivet Investments and together with LM6 and B8RE are acting as retained agents to lease or sell the refurbished scheme.
