New heritage project development fully let on Penzance waterfront

 The Abbey Warehouse on the harbour waterfront at Penzance, which was recently shortlisted for a regional Heritage Project of the Year award is now fully let. The historic landmark building has remained unoccupied for circa 60 years and had been sympathetically restored by developers Mango Homes with the support of Penzance Civic Society and Heritage Lottery Grants.

The local stone built premises offered a total of over 5,800 sq ft and were marketed off an initial rental of £12.50 per sq ft per annum.

Following the completion of a part letting to F L Smidt earlier in 2009, the remainder of the building has been taken by Nuon Renewables, who are a locally based developer, owner and operator of wind farms throughout the UK.

Partner, Mike Nightingale advises, "Our partnership is delighted to achieve a full letting of this impressive landmark building, not withstanding the general economic slowdown coinciding with the completion of the development".

Our clients, Mango Homes have acquired Planning Consent for the development of an adjacent building to be known as ‘The Sail’. It is to be glass fronted and would be equally suited for restaurant or office use. It will offer a total floor area of 4360 sq ft and is available by way of a pre-let to interested, bona-fide parties.
