Mill Gate, Bury

Hark, working in Partnership with Infrared Capital Partners, is the Asset Manager for Mill Gate Shopping Centre in Bury. Mill Gate dominates Bury town centre, comprising 400,000 sq ft of covered space including 140 shop units and main car park for the town.  Immediately adjacent to the scheme is the world famous Bury Markets, reportedly the best Market in the UK. The bus station and tram station are also adjacent to the scheme, along with the main Council offices and student Colleges of Bury.

Significant progress has been made since purchase in August 2014. Prior to its purchase in August 2014 the asset had suffered from lack of investment for many years. Working in partnership with the Metropolitan Borough of Bury and the Manchester Diocesan Board of Finance, Hark and Infrared have completely turned the centre around.
