Four of the six retail units at Central Hall in Birmingham are now under offer, leaving just two units available to let.
Central Hall, a historic Grade II* listed building located on Corporation Street in the city centre, comprises 11 units, totalling more than 300,000 sq ft.
Existing tenants include Purcell Parker Solicitors, Tuckers Solicitors, Make & Mend, L’Annexe restaurant, and T Wilkes Hairdresser.
The remaining units are Unit 198/202 (4,903 sq ft ground floor and basement) and Unit 208 (8,758 sq ft ground floor and basement). 208 was previously occupied by the Chinese Methodist Church and opens out into their former meeting hall with a soup kitchen in the basement.
Designed by architects Ewan Harper and James A Harper, the Edwardian red brick and terracotta Central Hall building was used as a place of worship until the early 1980s. It has been listed Grade II* of national architectural and historic interest.
Bruton Knowles was instructed to market the vacant units earlier this year, following the acquisition of the leasehold interest in the ground floor and basement shops, offices, and former Methodist meeting hall by Monopro Ltd, a private family investment company.
The upper floors of the building have been retained by the freeholder, Central Hall Developments Ltd.
John Tooke from Bruton Knowles’ Birmingham office, said: “Central Hall’s location close to the city centre, on the main pedestrian route from the university campus, means it attracts a considerable amount of footfall, perfect for retail occupiers.
“However, with four of the six units now under offer, time is running out for businesses interested in taking space in what has to be one of Birmingham’s finest examples of an Edwardian red brick building.”
