Estate agency Tanners is to half its ground floor offices in Nottingham and turn fifty per cent into a retail space.
Nottingham City Council has granted permission for Tanners to turn part of the ground floor of its historic 28-30 Pelham Street premises over to retail. It will keep the upper floors of the building, which in the 19th Century was home to local newspaper the Nottingham Journal.
The ground floor will be split in half, with one part being the “shop floor” of the estate agency, and a party wall erected to create the new retail space.
A statement on behalf of Tanners reads: “The proposed adaptation of the existing ground floor office accommodation is to reduce the size of Tanner’s ground floor office and create a new retail unit for rent.
“The general external appearance of the building will be retained and there are no proposed changes which affect any storey other than the ground. Internal features, which add to the architectural context of the building, will also be retained where possible and treated sympathetically by the proposals.”
