  2. Classic Victorian warehouse sold

    22 March 2018
    We’ve just completed the sale of an impressive Victorian warehouse in the heart of the City Fringe.
    Measuring 8,615ft2 and spread across 5 floors (lower ground to third), 34-38 Provost Street N1 sits at the junction of Vestry Street, just 160 metres north of Old Street tube. 

    With the regeneration of City Road in full swing, the immediate neighbourhood is getting not only a whole new skyline, but also a revitalised scene at street level that will eventually include a new public piazza on the remodelled Old Street roundabout.

    Previously occupied by Fortress Studios since the mid 1990s, the building has hosted a plentiful and varied collection of events, from electronic music nights and famously wild parties to big names like Coldplay, Toploader and even a certain Tom Jones. 

    Today, while somewhat dilapidated, the building has an awful lot going for it including great floor-to-ceiling heights, plenty of exposed brickwork and lots of original timber. The fantastic pitched roof would easily lend itself to the creation of a spectacular double-height top floor with accompanying mezzanine and wow factor.

    The prominent corner site provides yet more classic warehouse character with two elevations of big sash windows along with a stack of loading bay doors above one of the entrances.
