UNIQUE CCITY CENTRE DECELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY: Grade II listed former textile workshop/warehouse with Development Potential

The property comprises a Grade II Listed textile warehouse, dating back to the 1860's and is one of the few remaining within the city centre. It has been used by the vendor's family business for many decades and this is the first time it has come to open market.

The building is constructed over basement and three upper floors of brick construction beneath a slate roof, with timber single glazed windows and timber access doors to the faade. Internally, the property has timber floors and staircase and cast iron columns. The basement and second floors are not currently in use and the upper floors provide very basic storage, with some partitioned office areas to the first floor. There is a yard area to the side, accessed from Richmond Street that provides useful car parking, or potential for extension and/or incorporation into any future development.

There is the opportunity for any buyer to create something that is truly unique, retaining the period features that add masses of character and charm. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents we consider the potential is wide ranging from residential conversion and development, renovation and retention of the commercial use, or a hybrid live/work type scheme.
