We completed the purchase of this former Bournemouth University building at the end of January 2021. Located at the Lansdowne, it is close proximity to the transport hub at Bournemouth Railway Station, has great access to public transport, has nearby retail and food establishments and is only a short walk from the clifftop. We were also attracted by its prominence – it has extensive frontage to the busy Christchurch Road as well as Geris Road as it faces the St Swithun’s Road roundabout. We have on site parking as well as free short stay parking to the front.
We’ve already obtained change of use to allow a conversion to office space as well as planning to totally modernise the exterior appearance with galls curtain walling. There is also a planning application submitted for 63 flats and ground floor commercial space. We’re on site and the stripout has already commenced!
