The offices of the Coleraine Chronicle have been put on the market for offers around £280,000.
O’Connor Kennedy Turtle, the commercial real estate agency said “The subject unit is prominently located on the corner of Railway Road and Mill Street. Railway Road is a busy pedestrian area with a high volume of passing vehicular traffic. The property benefits from the good footfall from the nearby Bus / Railway Stations, together with good parking facilities in the Leisure Centre or on the subjects private parking area off Mill Street
The main buildings facing onto Railway Road are listed and retain much character of the time, internally comprising reception area, production space, various offices, stores etc., all commensurate with the current and long established use as a Newspaper Office.
Dating back to c. 1900, this Victorian period red brick building retains many of the original features including fluted masonry pillars, decorative cast iron rainwater goods, chimney stacks, casement windows, terracotta panels etc. With refurbishment the property would make very attractive office or retail space (Subject to the necessary statutory approvals as needed).
NOTE: The Chronicle may be willing to take a short term lease or licence of accommodation (TBC)
