When Cowell Group acquired this property it was a Ground Floor and Basement unit let to Nationwide Building Society with three vacant floors of offices above but at that time the area had not started its regeneration. Nationwide vacated the property and we successfully rented the property to Costa Coffee. We achieved a change of use from commercial to residential including an extra floor and by reconfiguring the staircase area we were able to build nine flats. All the flats have been retained by Cowell Group and continue to be rented within the portfolio.
