A substantial high street office or potential retail premises with development potential

This three storey building was formally the Eastern Daily Press offices but is now to be sold with vacant possession. The property has over 3,450 square ft of office and storage space over three floors with rear access including an internal garage approached from the rear lane. The building is in generally good order throughout and would be ideal for subdivision or potentially a part residential conversion on the upper floors. The shop is use class A2 and the rest of the building is use class B1. As there are permitted development rights to change B1 use into residential use this means that for the majority of the building no Planning Permission would be needed to convert to residential. Other National and well established retailers are located close by and the building is in a high profile location.
