AEW director Edward Long said: “We are pleased to have acquired this prime leisure asset located at the heart of Birmingham’s bustling night-time economy.
“The city has seen a renaissance over the past ten years, with significant developments such as Grand Central, Birmingham Library, Brindleyplace and numerous office and residential schemes.
“We believe the fundamentals remain very attractive, with Birmingham’s growing young professional and student population driving demand for entertainment and residential accommodation.
“Covid-19 restrictions have had a huge impact on the leisure sector, however, leisure is fundamental to people’s well-being across all demographics.
“Leisure activities are no longer just for special occasions, most UK consumers regard leisure as an integral part of daily life.
“As such, we look forward to covid-19 restrictions lifting and a return to normality and anticipate a strong bounce back in the leisure sector.”
