New operator sought for W3 Health and Fitness Club in Acton

The purpose built health and fitness centre, which was historically operated by Virgin Active, spans approximately 65,000 sq ft. Facilities include a 25m swimming pool, spa area with steam and sauna rooms, jacuzzi pools, solarium, ice cave, children's pool, crèche, café, adult lounge and bar, six treatment rooms, gymnasium, two studio rooms, spin studio, 12 tennis courts and tennis court pavilion.

The building, which was purpose built and opened in 2002, is arranged over ground and first floor levels with part mezzanine and some open atriums to full height. Car parking is located to the front and side of the building. The site also includes the adjacent cricket club, sub-let to Shepherds Bush Cricket Club.

The club, which temporarily closed in March 2020 due to government imposed restrictions to combat Coronavirus, permanently closed in late 2020. Prior to closure it generated substantial profits as a result of its high quality facilities and access to a prosperous demographic catchment in the surrounding area.

The property is situated in the London Borough of Acton, in west London. Road and rail connectivity from the property is good and the property fronts onto Bromyard Avenue which connects to the A4020 Acton Vale / Uxbridge Road to the south and the A40 to the north. London Underground stations in the vicinity include Acton Central, East Acton, West Acton, Shepherd's Bush Market and Shepherd's Bush.

Ian Simpson, Head of the Leisure and Trade Related team at Savills, says: "The Covid -19 related closure of W3 Club prompted a review of the current owner's investment objectives and presents an exciting opportunity for a new owner to re-launch this highly successful club adopting their own chosen operating strategy. The excellent location and extensive purpose built facilities at W3 Club should ensure that a prompt return to profitable trading is achieved."
