PART OF Nuneaton town centre’s former Barclays bank building, which closed its doors to customers for good back in April last year, may have found a new taker.
An ‘under offer’ sign has been spotted on the corner side of the prominent Grade II* listed former banking hall this week by eagle-eyed town centre shoppers. This means that an offer has been accepted, but the contracts have not yet been exchanged.
The historic property, which was constructed 132 years ago in 1890 with masonry materials, has been described as a “character commercial building” by Loveitts.
It currently sports an ‘E’ class use. In a brochure put together by Loveitts, it states that the unit could be considered for a variety of uses in this Use Class, such as retail, offices, a coffee shop, restaurant, indoor sports and fitness, or day centre centre.
But, this does not mean that the entirety of the building may be snapped up.
This is because the secondary larger part nearer to the Poundland side of Market Place is being marketed by a different property surveying firm – RK Real Estates.
It has been suggested that the larger partitioning of it simply be used as either a shop or a restaurant. However, these are just proposed uses and this would not see this use set in stone. And, it is still looking for a taker at the time of publication (10 August).
