Elder Way is all set to get a fresh new look.
With the former Co-op department store now fully transformed into seven modern street level units and ready for occupants, the window coverings have been removed. But not for long.
Fresh new designs are soon to be installed on the windows bordering Elder Way and Knifesmithgate. However, one unit will remain uncovered to give people the opportunity to see the transformation the iconic building has undergone.
The building’s developer, Jomast, has made the decision to leave Unit 7 permanently uncovered.
The unit, which is located at the top of Elder Way and opposite the newly opened Northern Gateway Enterprise Centre, is in a prime spot to capitalise on passing traffic along Saltergate and footfall into the town centre from the new office block and Saltergate multi storey.
Once home to the former Co-op’s gift department, the unit is now unrecogniseable as a blank canvas which is all ready to become a business’ new home.
Mark Hill, Commercial Property Director at Jomast Developments, said: “People have been very curious as to what lies behind the boards since we started transforming the building. We’re delighted at what we have achieved at Elder Way and think it’s time to now show that off the transformation. For everyone who remembers shopping in the building when it was a department store, they will be very surprised at what it now looks like.”
The regenerated mock Tudor building, which was formerly a Co-op department store, has seven spacious high quality street level units ready for businesses to move into.
Internally the building has been transformed, however, externally Jomast has ensured the building’s iconic façade has been preserved, including a Blue Plaque dedicated to James Walter Pullen MBE.
