Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter sold to high profile investor syndicate

Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter sold to high profile investor syndicate
July 7, 2014

The high profile investor Carsingha syndicate of John Singleton, Gerry Harvey and Mark Carnegie have spent $80 million to buy the leasehold of the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park.

Known as the 'three amigos', the trio see the potential for redevelopment at the Centennial Park location.

Commenting on the acquisition, Harvey told Fairfax Media “we - John Singleton, Katie Page, Mark Carnegie and I - visited it a couple of times and realised it was hard to get 11 hectares with development opportunities and its location, anywhere else in Sydney.”

Harvey suggested about 26,000 metres² within could be readily redeveloped after consultation with the local residents, adding "we will look at all options, including a hotel, pubs, serviced apartments and an updated retail sector.”

Previously the syndicate's portfolio has centred on hotel acquisitions.

CFS Retail Property Trust listed its leasehold interest in The Entertainment Quarter through Sam McVay from McVay Real Estate who secured the offer from the consortium headed by the Carnegie Private Opportunities Fund No. 1.

The sale of the mixed use asset focused on retail, F&B and entertainment along with space in the Centennial Park precinct is conditional on the approval of the ground lessor and the NSW government. 

It was sold by the CFS almost 10 years after it was bought from Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation and the developer, Lend Lease.
