Excellent Refurbishment/ Redevelopment Opportunity (subject to planning)
The property occupies a prominent position at the corner of Ava Avenue and the Ormeau Road, approximately 1.5 miles from Belfast City Centre. The Ormeau Road, a main arterial route serving the south of the city, is a popular suburban retail location with the surrounding area characterised by a vibrant mix of retail, food and service occupiers and a high density resident population.
The property enjoys a pleasant aspect overlooking Ormeau Park and is adjacent to The Bakery apartment & retail development, with occupiers in the locality including Tesco, Neptune, General Merchants and Greens Pizza.
The subject property is a three storey end-terrace building of traditional construction, arranged to provide a ground floor retail unit previously occupied as a hair salon, a lock-up/store accessed from Ava Avenue, whilst the upper floors provide office accommodation with separate access from Ava Avenue.
The accommodation which is in need of modernisation, provides a range of finishes to include plastered & painted walls, tiled floors and suspended ceilings with recessed lighting in the former ground floor salon, whilst the upper floor finishes include plastered & painted walls and ceilings, surface mounted lighting, carpeted floors as well as gas fired heating.
To the rear there is an enclosed yard which previously housed a garage whilst there is also a strip of ground to the side of the property between the building line and public footpath.
The property provides an excellent opportunity for refurbishment or redevelopment, subject to planning. Interested parties should make their own further enquiries directly with the local planning office.
