The property is situated at the eastern end lower East Street, an area that is witnessing an exceptional amount of regeneration and redevelopment in central Southampton. This includes the demolition of many adjoining buildings on East Street (with the exception of the Debenhams departmental store). Within 100 yards is a £27 million mixed-use scheme, predominantly 132 one and two-bed apartments for the rented sector, being constructed by the National Regional Property group for Grainger on the former Tuner-In site; conversion of Capital House by Kier for 423 room student accommodation to be managed by CRM, in addition to provision of new leisure and retail space. Adjoining are attractive champagne coloured brick-faced buildings currently under construction for additional student accommodation. Apart from a substantial multi-storey car park, Lidl’s are understood to be taking space in the new development. Consequently, this is a rare opportunity to get established in what will be a very busy and high foot-fall location, providing retail or dining space for a growing audience.
According to the Valuation Office (voa.gov.uk) the rateable value is £6,500.00, and therefore the current (2018/9) rates payable figure would be £3,120 (the rate in pound is 0.48 for RV figures less than £51,000). Any intended occupier should satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of this information.
