Savills appointed to make a splash at Mermaid Quay, Cardiff

25 November 2016

Savills have been appointed as joint leasing agents by Schroder UK Real Estate Fund at Mermaid Quay, the popular mixed-use destination on the waterfront in Cardiff Bay. The international real estate advisor joins existing agents Philip Hughes Davies and Reid Rose Gregory on the scheme.

The 150,000 sq ft (13,935 sq m) destination opened in 1999 and is home to more than 30 successful restaurants, cafés and bars including Bills, Carluccios, GBK, Zizzis, Wagamama and Costa. In addition there is a mix of boutique and national retailers as well as the live comedy venue, The Glee Club.

Less than two kilometres from Cardiff city centre, Mermaid Quay welcomes more than 5.3 million people a year. Its close proximity to many of the Bay’s major attractions including the Wales Millennium Centre, Doctor Who Experience and The Senedd attracts a mix of tourists, residents and office workers.

Chris O’Mahony, director in the retail team at Savills, adds: “We are delighted to be appointed as joint leasing agents on Mermaid Quay. Its unique mix of restaurants, bars and boutique shopping has ensured its reputation as a ‘must visit’ destination in Cardiff for residents and tourists alike.” 

Alex Kalebic, associate director in the retail team at Savills, adds: “Mermaid Quay is the leading waterfront destination in Wales. Living locally, I can see first hand the positive impact the scheme has had on the area and provides an unrivalled leisure offering.”
