Property description

The subject property comprises an imposing and locally Listed substantial brick building judged to have been constructed in the 1930's. While having been vacant for a number of years, its most recent use was as a place of worship.

The building benefits from a substantial and triple height main hall and stage area with further galleried sections forming the perimeter of the building at upper floor level. The building also accommodates a range of further lobby areas, individual office rooms, toilets and kitchen/canteen over the basement, ground, first, mezzanine and second floors.

While in need of extensive refurbishment and repair, the building offers a rare opportunity to acquire such a substantial property with the benefit of Class D1 consent to accommodate a range of religious worship*, community and educational uses. The building would also suit fitness, cinema, theatre/performance arts uses within Class D2 or related uses, subject to necessary consents.

Note: The freehold title for the building does contain restrictive covenants which prevent use of the existing building for the sale/consumption of alcohol, and as A place of worship. Interested parties are advised to take their own legal advice in this regard. Further details are available upon request.

The property is located in a highly visible and prominent position on Archway Road (A1) facing the junction of St John's Way on the Archway gyratory. The building is located within 50m of Archway Underground Station (Northern Line) and will benefit hugely from the proposed £13.0m project now underway to re-model the existing Archway gyratory. This will involve creating a new piazza just to the east of Archway Station, providing a new fully pedestrianised and landscaped link to the building and the retail/leisure properties which stand adjacent to it.

Upper Holloway Overground Station is also about 300 metres to the south, and numerous bus routes serve the local area. The neighbouring area comprises a wide variety of residential, retail, office and institutional uses, including the Whittington Hospital just to the north and campus buildings run by University of the Arts to the south.
