Quayside Properties has successfully acquired a new retail unit and tenant, adding to the diverse mix of attractions at Milford Marina.
Owned by the Port of Milford Haven, Quayside Properties was approached by the owner of vintage furniture and gift shop ‘Past to Present’ who wanted to relocate from a rented retail unit on Nelson Quay. Understanding the requirements of the business, Quayside Properties acquired 5 Sovereign House and ‘Past to Present’ opened its doors just twenty-four hours after completing on the property and handing over the keys.
Clare Stowell, Property and Development Manager at Quayside Properties, said “Milford Marina is an exciting and vibrant location and businesses like Past to Present make a valuable contribution to the success of this thriving waterside destination. The first planning application has been submitted as part of our £70 million Milford Waterfront development and creating the right mix of retail and leisure occupiers is really important to us, so we’re keen to hear from other companies that may be interested in relocating to the marina.”
Past to Present owner, Denise Greenslade, is delighted with the new unit commenting “I would like to thank Quayside Properties for the help and support I received with my relocation. I found them to be both professional and efficient, and the work that was carried out before completion was done to a very high standard. The staff were very accommodating towards my needs and I look forward to being a tenant.”
The Port of Milford Haven received a resolution to grant planning consent from Pembrokeshire County Council in 2015. The Milford Waterfront development will create new exciting attractions, revitalising the existing waterfront destination by adding a mix of local, regional and national brands within the leisure, retail and dining sectors. It is envisaged that as well as creating around 600 long term jobs it will provide a boost to the local economy through increased local spending and an uplift in visitor numbers.
