Excellent Time to Invest in Preston’s Historic Business Quarter
Posted on 11th November 2014
Following the news that The Winckley Square Project has received significant funding to regenerate Preston’s historic Georgian Square and surrounding buildings, there has never been a better time to invest in property in the area.
A grant of £945,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund will be used to transform the area in a ‘simple, sympathetic, yet transformational’ way. With the funding, the project will work to enhance the area through repair and refurbishment of buildings to support city-wide regeneration.
The Winckley Square Community Interest Company is also helping to lead a separate £1 million bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to enhance Winckley Square Gardens which will be submitted in February 2015. If successful this will breathe new life into one of the North West’s finest surviving examples of a privately planned Georgian square.
A prominent Winckley Square property in the heart of the business district overlooking the gardens is currently on the market for sale and offers an attractive opportunity to be part of this exciting economic area of the city.
The 3,470 sq ft four storey, mid-terrace, brick property benefits from features such as a reception area, inter-com entry system, air conditioning, suspended ceilings with recessed grid lighting, carpet floor covering throughout, perimeter trunking for data cabling, kitchen and WC facilities.
Other occupiers in the area include Napthens solicitors, DWF Solicitors, Harrison Drury, Handelsbanken and HMRC.
The freehold sale price is £375,000 and all enquiries should be made to Mark Harrison on 01772 769000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
