Office for sale


On behalf of Gloucester City Council we are offering these imposing and substantial properties that comprise the former headquarters for the City Council known as Herbert, Kimberley and Phillpotts Warehouses (HKP).

Within Kimberley Warehouse the public house known as Doctor Foster's continues to trade and is unaffected by the disposal of these buildings.

In addition the 2 floors at the same level as Doctors Fosters in Phillpotts Warehouse are also excluded from the sale.

These exceptional properties provide a rare opportunity for a developer or owner occupier to give these buildings a new lease of life through a sympathetic refurbishment for a range of potential uses that complement the thriving commercial and residential community at this waterside location.

Herbert, Kimberley and Phillpotts date back from 1846 and were built originally to accommodate the growth of Gloucester Docks during the Victorian era. They were named after the corn merchants that constructed them and stand as an iconic testament to the entrepreneurial spirit that Gloucester has always enjoyed.

The buildings were restored and converted to offices by Gloucester City Council in 1985 to include glazed linked walkways between each block. Each building enjoys a Grade II listing status is of solid brick construction over 6 floors (with a basement) with timber truss roofs covered with natural slate.

Gloucester Docks has seen major investment with the majority of the other warehouses converted to either residential or commercial uses offering a truly mixed use destination.

Gloucester Quays conceived and constructed by the Peel Group is within close proximity and continues to enjoy considerable success comprising a well-represented discount retail outlet centre with many nearby restaurants.

At Llanthony Warehouse Canal and River Trust have their National Waterways Museum an exceptionally popular tourist attraction which itself has recently undergone major refurbishment.

The Guide Price is £3,000,000

The floor areas stated are approximate net internal.
