JLL appointed to manage UK’s largest Grade I Listed portfolio

Aberdeen Asset Management appoints JLL for Albert Dock


Manchester, March 2016 – Property consultant JLL has been appointed to manage all commercial space at Liverpool's Albert Dock on behalf of Aberdeen Asset Management.

The 19th century dock comprises the largest collection of Grade I Listed buildings in the country and includes 400,000 sq ft of hotel, leisure, retail and office accommodation. In addition to the Tate Liverpool, occupiers at the UNESCO World Heritage Site include Holiday Inn, Premier Inn, The Beatles Story, Gusto, and Miller and Carter. As part of the contract, JLL is managing leases at Albert Dock and will establish an on-site presence for occupier enquiries.

JLL's building consultancy division has also been appointed to deliver a refurbishment contract for seven commercial units at the site. The contracts follow Aberdeen Asset Management's acquisition of the site earlier this year for circa £42.75 million.

Jill Renison, Property and Asset Management director at JLL, said: "The Albert Dock regeneration was something of a beacon for Liverpool city centre's revival and it's testament to the quality of the site that it remains a thriving commercial and leisure destination.

"Given its history, prestigious buildings, and significance as one of the UK's most important tourist attractions, it's a fantastic appointment for us and builds upon the growing number of treasured assets we manage in the North West."
