  • Refurbish/Develop

    Conversion of department store to residential



    It's always inspiring to learn about development projects of other PT members, find out how they financed them, and how they are going to realise their vision for their project.

    We recently met up with Liverpool based property developer, Paul Nicholson,  Founder of Luxor Estates, to hear about his latest purchase - the iconic Tyrers Building in St. Helens - and how it will have a £1million refurb undertaken by Paul's company to regenerate the town centre.

    We visited Paul right at the start of the project when the building is still an empty shell from it's previous life as a department store.



    As Paul mentioned, he is funding the development through a cash purchase and refurb funds, and is then refinancing on completion to a long-term loan provided by Shawbrook Bank.

    St Helens town centre manager Gary Maddock said: "It’s great to see a local developer invest in the area and convert an empty building in to a viable scheme which will benefit the whole community.

    “Investment is key to attracting new businesses and footfall so we are excited to see Luxor’s development come to fruition and make a positive contribution to St Helens.”

    I thought I would share the Case Study that we produced for Shawbrook Bank with Paul Nicholson, as it goes into further detail of the project and how it was funded.

    A bit of an up-date on Paul - he has made another purchase to continue its investment plans in St. Helens.

    Luxor Group has acquired Claughton House, on the corner of Claughton Street and Barrow Street, with plans to convert it into studios and apartments.

    The upper floors of the 16,000 sq ft building, which has been empty office space, will become 18 residential units comprising of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, and will be known as Luxor House.

    A selection of the proposed apartments on the top floor will have outside seating areas.

    Once developed, this will see Liverpool-based Luxor’s portfolio rise to 177 rental units across Merseyside.

    It is great to see this sort of project and I hope all goes to plan

    But this sort of Project proves my point that in general the small Landlords time is coming to an end

    Professional Landlords within a company is the only way now

    we are now entering in the Landlord world a new chapter

    it will be a them and us situation

    Landlords will leave through S24 ect and the new breed as your highlighting is starting to grow

    It will be the rich landlords who prosper and grow just like the Supermarkets did in the 1960/70

    I look forward to the new world and its going to be exciting to be part of it
