The premises occupy a very visible corner position on the junction of Portswood Road/Portswood Avenue near to Pharmacy Direct and opposite The Gordon Arms public house, with a number of food-led businesses as well as Waitrose nearby. Portswood is one of the largest of Southamptons suburbs and is surrounded by a huge concentration of housing, including students, on the north eastern side of the City Centre.
A brand new, single-storey double-fronted corner commercial unit which has been reinstated to a shell and core condition, and is now ready for a new tenant to take occupation and undertake their own fit-out, subject to securing any necessary planning consents. The property benefits from excellent levels of natural light thanks to a double-glazed frontage with windows extending to a height of 2m22. There is a single-phase electricity, a capped water supply (with drainage provision) and a fire alarm installed, giving the incoming occupier a blank canvas to work with to install a kitchenette/toilet etc.
A planning condition of the recent reinstatement works is that this unit has to be a restaurant, as it was connected internally to a unit next door, however it is now completely separated and not suitable for food use. A Change of Use planning application to Class E / Sui Generis by a new tenant should be very straightforward, in our opinion.
