Metquarter is an luxury shopping centre consisting primarily of boutique stores located in central Liverpool, England. The current Metquarter building was formerly owned by The Walton Group and served as Liverpool's central Post Office, the site was acquired in 2004 by Milligan (a retail development company that is also linked with Triangle Manchester the retail and leisure operations in Manchester and London Luton Airports) and J. W. Kaempfer and Richardson Developments who envisaged to help transform Liverpool city centre into a much more international and contemporary city. Over the space of two years from what was thought to cost £70 million eventually came to a total of £100 million and the former Post Office building was transformed into a 160,000 sq ft (15,000 m2) leisure and retail centre. Metquarter was officially opened on March 9, 2006. Following a successful 18-month launch period, Milligan sold Metquarter in August 2007 to Anglo Irish Bank Private Banking and Alanis Capital, the current day owners.
