Currently a six storey building (28,000ft2) over a basement level designed by Robinson McIlwaine Architects for The General Accident Assurance Corporation. Built between 1984 – 1986 (planning ref: Z/1984/0597).
The existing building was placed on the market in January 2016 by Lambert Smith Hampton with offers invited in the region of £3.5m. The agents also provided details of a potential redevelopment scheme on the site comprising a new 77,335 ft2 office building and 50 car parking spaces.
The building was purchased by Killultagh Estates in June 2016 for an undisclosed sum.
Killultagh Estates and Todd Architects submitted a planning application (LA04/2017/0288/F) in January 2017 proposing to demolish the existing building and develop a 10-storey office building with two basement parking levels and retail use at ground floor. The proposal was later amended to 9-storeys.
Killultagh Estates’ website notes that construction is due to commence in 2018.
B. Small Contracts Ltd have commenced work on site to prepare the existing building for demolition.
