Office renovation ready for next phase
A £250,000 external renovation has been completed as part of plans to convert a Grade II listed building into office space in York’s city centre.
External work has included repointing the front elevation, overhauling the roof and installing double-glazed windows into the existing wooden frames to reflect the original features of the property.
Ian Hunter, director at Manchester-based Property Alliance said: “We have extensive experience of renovating listed buildings, so all of the external work has been sensitively carried out to reflect the original features of this period property.
“The internal refurbishment is due to start by the end of August and should be completed towards the end of this year with accommodation that can meet an occupier’s bespoke requirement.
“The property’s location near to the railway station and York’s main retail centre, makes it an attractive proposition for companies of varying sizes.”
Inside, the building has been stripped back to its shell ahead of the interior refurbishment which will result in a new entrance foyer, suspending ceilings, toilets, skylights and kitchenette facilities on each floor as well as upgraded lift and common areas.
The offices are expected to generate a “healthy interest” according to Jonathan Shires, director of Office Agency at CBRE in Leeds, who says there is a lack of “quality Grade A space within York city centre”.
