With over 30 years’ experience in Town Centre retail and leisure real estate, John Brady, a Fellow of the R.I.C.S. has in-depth knowledge of the North West market. John has advised on numerous shopping centre reconfigurations including the introduction of a new Next Department Store into St. Nicholas Arcades, Lancaster and Marks & Spencer Food Hall into The Forge Shopping Centre, Stockton Heath, Warrington. John has advised on the reinvention of K-Village, Kendal with the replacement of the retail mall with a new Travelodge, together with new offices and restaurants.
John also advises numerous Councils, including Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council on the redevelopment of the Cathedral Quarter, Blackburn now home to a Premier Inn and Grade A offices. John is currently advising Burnley Borough Council on Pioneer Place, a new cinema led Town Centre leisure scheme. Also, Preston City Council on ‘Animate’, the new cinema and bowl leisure scheme with restaurants and bars to be constructed adjacent to the Victorian Market within the Harris Quarter Cultural Hub.
As Town Centres need reinventing, replacing redundant retail space with new purpose and activities, John Brady is here to advise.
Bradys are specialists in retail and leisure agency work with a focus on the North West market. We act on disposals and acquisitions of leasehold and freehold property on the high street, in shopping centres and out of town. We also provide strategic asset management advice to institutional and smaller landlords, Local Authorities and occupiers in respect to their property holdings and requirements.
It is the ability to understand the retail market and interpret agreements, coupled with an ability to convey these facts to both client and other parties that sets Bradys aside.
Bradys advise landlords and tenants on rent reviews, lease renewals, lease re-gears throughout the North West. If a fair settlement cannot be reached by negotiation they are happy to act for clients in respect to Arbitrations and Court Submissions acting as Expert Witness. Bradys also advise on retail and leisure rating matters.
