Property description

Directly facing the open Town Hall Square, and looking straight across the road at the brand new £37m Storyhouse Cultural Centre and Library. This property sits in an unrivalled central location in the heart of Chester City.

It is unaffected by any of the Northgate Redevelopment proposals, which will serve to further improve this corner, with the relocation of the market and the development of a new multi-screen cinema within 100m of the property (see attached plans).

The Property comprises a double fronted saleshop, with a return frontage to Hunter Street. It is presently arranged as a ground floor shop with small basement, and upper floor rooms (currently used as storage). The property has just been the subject of a major external refurbishment.

Planning Consent has been secured for A3 use and for a scheme of internal alterations. This can create a clear open ground floor space, with a large open first floor; enabling retailing or hospitality to use the building to maximum effect over two publically accessible trading floors (with 2nd floor, staff and storage).

Layout plans of the existing building and of the proposed new internal arrangement are attached to these details.

The freeholders are prepared to enter into a pre-letting arrangement, subject to the completion of the internal works, which gives the ingoing tenant a say in the finishes and details.


On completion of a full refurbishment, the property will comprise a clear ground floor area, with an interconnecting first floor Sales/Restaurant area and a second floor (staff and stores), with basement storage and the ability for Al-fresco trading to the front.

The Gross Internal Areas are anticipated to be approximately:-

Ground floor (Sales) 984 sq ft 91.42 sq m

First floor (Sales) 991 sq ft 92.07 sq m

Second floor 863 sq ft 80.17 sq m
(staff and stores)

Basement cellar 175 sq ft 16.25 sq m

(Plus Al-fresco seating area to the front)


The property sits in a Conservation Area, but is not Listed. Consent for change of Use and Alterations was obtained in June 2017 (17/01315/ful).
