GOLDEN Square has been sold to new owners for £141m.

LaSalle Investment Management completed the acquisition of the Warrington shopping centre from Warrington Retail Limited Partnership, a 50:50 joint venture between Lend Lease and Legal & General, earlier this week.

Julian Agnew, from the company, said: "The acquisition of Golden Square, Warrington, highlights our client’s strategy to invest in dominant, high quality assets with a strong occupational line up and good footfall.”

The centre, which covers 712,500 square feet and contains 133 units housing stores including Topshop, River Island and Primark, has an average footfall of over 12m a year.
