No.124 Great Victoria Street was then placed on the market by Lisney with offers invited in the region of £50,000. The property comprises 836ft2 over ground and first floor.

A planning application (LA04/2015/1048/F) submitted in September 2015 proposed to convert the upper floors to provide 5no. two bed and 2no. one bed apartments over the existing ground floor retail units. The application was approved in May 2016.

Construction work to refurbish and convert the building to residential use commenced in July 2016, however a fire within the building on 11th September 2016 caused substantial damage and work ceased.

BGA Architects submitted a planning application (LA04/2017/2429/F) in October 2017 proposing to develop a 7 storey building comprising 2no. ground floor restaurant units and 19no. apartments above.

The application was amended in October 2018 and now proposes to develop a 5 storey building comprising 2no. ground floor restaurant units and 13no. apartments above.
