Worcester is a thriving Cathedral City within the County of Hereford & Worcester and having a population of some 75,000 and a wide catchment area benefiting from the excellent communications provided by the M5 motorway, together with direct rail links to London Paddington. Birmingham is some 29 miles to the north, with Cheltenham and Gloucester 25 miles to the south; Hereford 26 miles to the west and Stratford-upon-Avon a similar distance to the east.
The M5 motorway runs immediately east of the City of Worcester, with access points at junctions 6 and 7 respectively for north and southbound travel. Connections northwards with the M6, via the M42, are easily obtained, including linking through to Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre.
The City of Worcester contains a wide range of businesses. Whilst recent years have seen a change in the general engineering background of the City, there has been much expansion recently on new industrial estates which take advantage of the excellent location with the county. The traditional city centre has a well-established commercial area where the majority of professional type offices are located and, as far as Foregate street is concerned, these include the Shirehall and Court Offices.
Foregate Street benefits also from the mainline railway station and also has the Whitehouse Hotel (formerly the Star Hotel) in the street thus making for ease of access and accommodation for the visitor from away.
Citation House comprises an original Listed Building to the Foregate Street frontage, with a traditional layout of rooms to the Georgian style and a modern extension providing largely open plan office space to the rear frontage at Farrier Street.
All mains services are connected to the building – applicants are advised to make their own enquiries of the respective Public Utilities in respect of any particular requirements which their occupancy may create.
Enquiries to be made to Worcester City Council on 01905 723471.
Offers are invited for the freehold interest with vacant possession.
The Agents would be pleased to discuss suggestions with interested parties as appropriate; though, as the layout of the building indicates, it would be possible with ease to achieve a sub-division whilst maintaining access from both Foregate Street and Farrier Street and use of lifts ands stairs and sharing of the internal services.
