New look for riverside warehouse
A FORMER riverside warehouse in Hull which was built nearly 150 years ago is set to undergo refurbishment after being bought by an investor and developer.
New North Bridge House, which was initially converted into apartments in the late 1980s, will undergo a complete refurbishment under the new owners.
The value of their investment has not been disclosed, but the asking price was £1.1m.
Hull-based commercial and residential agents Garness Jones sold the building on behalf of the construction company which carried out the original conversion.
Hans Nieuwkerk, residential director at Garness Jones, said: “It is an exciting opportunity – a building with real character in a great location on the fringe of the city centre and the Old Town.
“Most of the 25 apartments are occupied at the moment and will be fully refurbished as they become vacant.
“Work will begin straight away on those which are unoccupied, and on the communal areas.”
