Amzme plans extension to Southport offices
Amzme Partnership, a Southport-based developer, has acquired the town's former BT telephone exchange on Blowick Business Park for £800,000 from a private investor.
Amzme is considering extending the multi-let office and industrial building onto land to the south of the site.
The 14,000 sq ft centre is home to manufacturing firm Ravendale and Kitchequip, a kitchen equipment distributor.
Amzme's portfolio consists of several residential and commercial developments in the Southport area including the York Homes development scheme in Birkdale and the Cable Street development in Formby. The latter is one of the largest to be released in the Formby area for over 20 years.
Marcel Zachariah, managing director of Amzme, said: "This is a well established site that has good transport links and is within easy reach of Southport town centre. It has great potential and we are considering developing part of the site to enhance the size and quality of accommodation available."
Funding was provided by the property finance team at NatWest in Liverpool. Andy Webster, relationship manager at NatWest, said: "Marcel is an experienced and well regarded property developer having delivered many schemes in Southport and the surrounding area. I'm confident his plans will enhance the site and make it an attractive proposition for prospective tenants."
