Farhad Moshiri has jointly purchased the Royal Liver Building and its world-famous rooftop Liver Birds.
The world-famous building was sold for £48m in February to a consortium led by international property group Corestate.
This morning, the Liverpool ECHO revealed that Mr Moshiri was Corestate’s partner in the deal.
Moshiri told the ECHO: “I am delighted to have jointly acquired the Royal Liver Building, which is a world-class property in a bustling riverfront location.
“Following my investment in Everton last year, I am confident in the prospects for Liverpool as a thriving international city and am pleased that I have been able to make this investment in such a landmark building with potential for further improvement.”
“The next step is to invest money and get tenants for the vacant space where we see a huge opportunity for Liverpool at the moment.”
