Bordering Hyde Park and close to the West End, Queensway is a bustling cosmopolitan centre in the fashionable district of Bayswater. With outstanding transport links into and out of London, it is the largest of the four Bourne Capital Estates.
Queensway is famous for having central London's biggest ice rink, Queensway Market and a diverse range of Mediterranean, Middle East and Asian restaurants. It is a model for inner urban regeneration in partnership with the local authority whilst also offering strong performance and returns for investors.
Queensway has evolved significantly since the initial acquisition, growing to include three substantial blocks of properties that occupy both sides of the street near Queensway London Underground Station.
Queen's Court, the first property to be acquired, has recently undergone a multi-million pound investment programme. Originally comprising the ice rink and retail space, it was redeveloped and rebranded as Queens Ice and Bowl. It is now a substantial new leisure complex encompassing tenpin bowling, an electronic games venue, a bar, and a restaurant/cafe, as well as retaining London's most famous ice rink, all of which are run successfully by our Leisure Division.
Additional floor space was also created during the redevelopment creating a mezzanine floor to house the Queensway Market, now the largest employment hub in the area, employing some 400 people.
In addition to the leisure complex, the Queensway Estate also includes retail, office, and residential space, as well as a six-level underground car park with 310 spaces.
Bourne Capital is seeking to further expand the Queensway Estate through land and property acquisition in partnership. The aim is to grow the estate and increase revenues through active property management and adding to the leisure portfolio.
The group is currently working with local businesses who, in conjunction with the local authority, want enhancement of Queensway's streetscape to reflect the street's status as one of London's most vibrant multicultural quarters, and one of the capital's busiest shopping streets.
