A new future secured for Soar

Debenture PLC has taken control of Soar, formerly the Xscape at Braehead, appointing a leading asset and property management team to the 370,000 sq ft retail, leisure and entertainment destination.

Concluding the transition of Soar from intu and kick-starting its transformation, property management company MAPP has been appointed to support the existing centre team. Specialist investment manager APAM will assume asset management responsibilities.

The centre will continue to operate under the Soar branding ahead of a revamp and new name in late 2020. The rebrand will include a new logo, external signage and website.

Nigel Mapp, CEO at MAPP and Simon Cooke, Executive Director at APAM, said: “The onsite team at Soar is outstanding and we are working with them to grow the team. Together we’ll ensure that many, many more fun and memorable experiences are had at Scotland’s unique entertainment destination.”

Jim Tucker, partner at KPMG and joint administrator at intu, said: “The orderly migration of intu’s centres to new management continues at pace despite their challenges, with further transitions set to conclude in the coming days. We thank the team at Soar for their support during the administration process and wish them well for the future.”

Latest centre information

Following the Scottish Government’s recent update we are sorry to announce that most of our attractions will be closed for business from Saturday 4th January 2021. Evans cycle shop will remain trading. Five Guys, TGI Friday’s and Ellis Brigham will also be open for takeaway or click & collect.

In line with Government guidance, anyone visiting the centre, must wear a face covering.

Throughout the pandemic, we continue to do everything we can to make sure the centre is a safe place to visit and work.
