PureGym will open a new fitness centre in Liverpool Shopping Park


24-hour fitness centre operator PureGym is taking a 15,000 sq ft unit at Liverpool Shopping Park.

PureGym has agreed a 15-year lease with the Derwent Group, acting on behalf of the park’s owner the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation. The gym is scheduled to open in the summer.

PureGym will join existing tenants at the park, which is close to Edge Lane, including Nike, M&S Food Hall, Greggs, Boots, Next, Smyths Toys, JD Sports, Hollywood Bowl and T K Maxx.

In February, LBN reported that the park, which opened in October 2017, is to expand by 80,000 sq ft in an £11m investment. Its current footprint is more than 165,000 sq ft.

James Maule-Ffinch, senior asset manager at the Derwent Group, said: “The prominent location of Liverpool Shopping Park, fronting Edge Lane, means that it has immediate appeal to retail and leisure operators.

“PureGym is another fantastic addition to the Park – and its first gym – and we were delighted to have worked with them to accommodate their specific requirements.
