New look for riverside ware­house

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

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.”
