Simon Tilley and Nick Wills have secured a second Queensland investment in three years – again choosing Brisbane’s inner city.
The Shaftston Hotel in East Brisbane was one of three pubs in the city listed in July by Redcape Hotel Group, managed by ASX-listed MA Financial.
The freehold going concern is costing $19 million – about the price Redcape in 2020.
That seller, Delware North, paid Colin McLeod’s Oz Pub Group c$18m two years earlier.
The venue includes a gaming room with 34 electronic gambling machines, a bar and bistro
HTL Property’s Andrew Jolliffe and Dan Dragicevich were the agents (story continues below).
Their deal comes nearly four years since the Sydney pair’s Tilley & Wills acquired its maiden Queensland investment – the 132 year old Elephant Hotel, now the The Prince Consort, in Fortitude Valley – for over $20m.
For Redcape, the transaction means it has divested all three Queensland assets offered as part of a wider sell down; it had not long earlier announced it would be freezing redemptions until July.
The other two traded to Star Hotels.
