Plans revealed for Grade A office space in landmark Nottingham building

The City Buildings

Plans to turn one of Nottingham’s landmark buildings into Grade A office space have been submitted to the City Council.

Grace Machin, on behalf of Shoby Investments, has outlined a redevelopment on the City Buildings on Carrington Street that would see the first, second, third and fourth floors of the grand building transformed into 44,300 sq ft of office accommodation.

A planning statement with the application reads: “The City Buildings which comprise 28 to 48 Carrington Street occupy a key strategic position close to the recently demolished Broadmarsh bus station and this application forms part of an exciting period of investment into the Nottingham Station area and Southside close to the heart of the city.”

Shoby Investments bought the City Buildings last April. At the time, David Shelton of Shoby, said: ““Working with CPMG Architects and Gleeds with guidance from Fhp, we will provide some of the best offices in Nottingham. Up to 45,000 sq ft will be available as a whole or in floors of 10,000 sq ft, or indeed in part from 3,000 sq ft, in 12-15 months.

“We are long-term investors and look forward to holding this fantastic building, once fully refurbished and let, in the family property company for many years to come.”
