Built in 1989, Hulls’s Wilberforce Court was formerly used as luxury office spaces for established business headquarters. The four-storey office block is now being converted into the latest city centre living accommodation.
The building currently has an impressive 50,000 sq. ft. of space, which allows for 151 self-contained one-bedroom apartments. Future residents will have access to an inner courtyard with 49 parking spaces on-site and a cycle storage area.
The transformation of the property helps to meet the demand for much-needed living accommodation in the city centre and is likely to be popular amongst first time buyers and the professional market.
Ideally situated on the south side of Alfred Gelder Street close to its junction with Guildhall Road and Lowgate, the site is within easy walking distance of a range of shops, services and public transport links.
St Stephens, Princes Quay and Prospect Shopping Centre are amongst some of the best shopping spots in the city centre, which continue to drive a lot of interest to Hull.
Residents won’t have far to travel for a bite to eat or drink, as just opposite sits The White Hart pub, which is well known for live music, gourmet pub food and craft beers.
The high profile property lies in the heart of Hull’s main business district, so there are lots by the way of employment opportunities for future residents.
For those that travel further afield for work, the daily commute should be a breeze – with the opportunity for a car parking space on the premises and great public transport links a stone’s throw away.
The apartments will be stylish, comfortable and secure and will meet the highest standards for energy efficiency.
All apartments are accessed off a central corridor and the layout maximises the natural light afforded to the property.
Once a flagship town for fishing and heavy industry, Hull’s economy is now thriving through the retail sector, tourism, the arts and higher education.
These sectors have played an increasingly prominent role in the process of economic regeneration and raising the profile of the city.
