Our Real Estate team has advised Fraser Real Estate on the sale of the 72,000 sq. ft. mixed-use development on Soho's Berwick Street comprising a Premier Inn hotel, 12 residential apartments, four affordable housing apartments and 12 retail units.
The transaction comprised several simultaneous workstreams including revising the holding structure for the residential aspects of the development, surrendering the existing headlease to the freeholder and selling the 12 retail units to Shaftesbury Soho Limited.
Gowling WLG advised Fraser Real Estate on all aspects of the transaction including Tax, Real Estate and Construction. The team that worked on the project was led by senior associate Edmund Willis and partner Nick Mumby with support from construction principal associate Sarah Morris Poxton and tax partner Lee Nuttall.
