Morfa Shopping Park was purchased with partners Ashby Capital in December 2015 for £53.5m reflecting an initial yield of 6.00%.

The large, well-let dominant retail location comprises of 339,000 sq. ft. of retail space adjacent to the City’s main stadium venue and is anchored by a Morrison’s food store, B&Q Warehouse and Curry’s PC World megastore.

Since purchase, Quadrant Estates has agreed, exchanged contracts and opened a brand new large format Next department store totalling 57,000 sq. ft. over two levels. In addition, a new TK Maxx store will open later this year as part of the same transaction. Already the new Next has made a big impact on consumers and it is expected TK Maxx will follow suit.

Further asset management and development is planned to improve the variety of tenant mix and offer a better depth of food and beverage provision to visitors of the park.
