SPACES UNDER DEVELOPMENT

ALLEY LEVEL

The most unusual space of them all. 900 square metres of enormous ceilings, winding vaulted tunnels, nooks and crannies and even some old machinery from the OB’s past life – this space has the potential to be something truly special.

We are a developing a new charity to animate the empty spaces on this floor ­- Leisure & Learning. It will work with local people and groups and partners to create a year round exciting programme of events for everyone to enjoy.

CURRENTLY SEEKING TENANT – DEADLINE 15 DECEMBER
The planned use for the bottom three floors will be a vibrant mix of leisure and learning. We are looking for a tenant for the alley level main hall, to move in during summer 2019. Find out more >>

SECOND AND THIRD FLOOR
CAPPED RENT HOUSING

These two floors will be renovated into 16-17 capped rent flats, similar to the flats we currently have at Rock House. Construction work on these floors is estimated to start in 2021, subject to fundraising.

We will advertise the opportunity to apply for a flat widely in the town once the flats are near completion. A strategic decision was made by the team not to provide artist studios on these floors due to the high demand for affordable housing and finite opportunity to secure community housing funding.

FOURTH FLOOR
ROOF GARDEN

Ideas for this space are still in development as the roof needs urgent repairs to waterproof the building.

We hope to eventually remove it completely to cultivate a beautiful sheltered garden, some function rooms, a covered walkway and a private where tenants, hirers and the public can enjoy panoramic views of the town and ocean.
