ACTING on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council, Innes England has been instructed to sell a unique historical landmark, in the shape of the former Home Brewery building in Arnold, Nottingham. The Grade ll Listed former brewery HQ building – now known as Sir John Robinson House – provides a total of 41,032 sq ft of accommodation in a prominent site of almost two acres on Mansfield Road in Arnold.
The property provides over 30,000 sq ft of offices and is situated on its own self-contained site which provides parking for over 180 cars. Although only three miles from Nottingham city centre, the property lies outside of the Workplace Car Parking Levy zone and is situated at the junction of Sir John Robinson Way and the A60 (Mansfield Road), one of Nottingham’s main arterial routes.
The immediate area surrounding the site has a mixture of uses including residential flats, retail (including a Sainsbury’s superstore), a car dealership and a number of office buildings. The building itself is spread over three floors, with an ancillary lower ground floor and upper four-storey tower. There is a mix of cellular and open plan office space with kitchen facilities and ample storage.
Craig Straw of Innes England says: “This is a unique opportunity to purchase one of Nottingham’s iconic buildings. The substantial Grade ll Listed property would suit a variety of uses, whether that’s continued use as an office or, subject to the requisite consents, other uses which might include a business centre, education, community, residential or leisure development.
Councilor Reg Adair, chairman of the finance and property committee at Nottinghamshire County Council added: “Nottinghamshire County Council is selling a number of buildings following a strategic countywide review of its property portfolio. Capital receipts and savings in maintenance costs will be reinvested back into frontline services and major infrastructure schemes to boost the local economy.
“The former Home Brewery building is one of our most high profile buildings. Its location would make it an ideal base or head office location for any company with commuting staff, plus the area is exempt from the Workplace Parking Levy.”
