“Our purchase offers several asset-management opportunities and we plan to work with our tenant Mecca to explore the development potential of the site to incorporate roadside pods and electric vehicle charging.

“The Mecca Bingo in Oldbury is a fantastic facility that is well used providing an excellent service for the local community which also represents an outstanding investment.

“We very much look forward to exploring opportunities to create more services and jobs for the local community while adding value to the site.

“We continue to grow our investment portfolio and implement our investment strategy, to increase value through asset-management initiatives, refurbishment and redevelopment, focussing on new investment opportunities within the commercial property sector and hope to have future positive announcements shortly.”

Allan Wilson, director of property agency JLL acted for Barberry in the deal.

He added: “In a market where genuinely interesting deals are few and far between, this was a standout opportunity and one which I am confident will prove to be a very shrewd investment.

“Barberry had to react and transact quickly with such a competitive asset and successfully completed the deal in less than four weeks from terms being agreed.”

Nick Wood, director at Savills who acted for the undisclosed vendor, said: “The process generated significant interest from a broad range of investors and developers, reflecting the property’s strategic value and future potential. A fantastic outcome for all parties involved.”
