BA Pension Fund

British Airways Pension Investment Management Limited, advised by GBR Phoenix Beard, has acquired the long leasehold interest of Chapel Quarter in Nottingham for an undisclosed sum from the Stainton Fund. 

Comprising 145,000 sq ft of space, Chapel Quarter is a high profile mixed-use scheme completed in 2003.  The development consists of 66,500 sq ft of Grade A office space, a 120 bedroom hotel, four bar and restaurant units and a health and fitness centre.  One of the main appeals of Chapel Quarter is that it is fully let to ten occupiers, including Thomson Reuters, Barclays, Global Radio, Adtrak, Kew Green Hotels (branded as Holiday Inn Express), Ask Restaurants, Las Iguanas and Fat Cat Café. Chapel Quarter is located at the heart of Nottingham’s financial and professional services sector.
