Renewal of Harris Quarter Assets
As part of the £200 million Harris Quarter Towns Fund Investment Programme, investment to support the redevelopment of key publicly-owned buildings in the Harris Quarter, such as Amounderness House and 10/12 Lancaster Road, to stimulate business, cultural and community uses was identified as a key project.
Amounderness House refurbishment
The refurbishment of this historic building into a managed work/office space hub will complement the recently transformed heritage Preston Market, the proposed new development of Animate - a Cinema and bowling attraction with food/drink venues, the 'Harris Your Place' project involving refurbishment of the iconic Grade ll Harris into a blended Museum/library/art gallery venue and the new Preston Youth Zone complemented by a series of new public realm and illumination works.
A tenant has been sought who will fit out and operate a managed workspace accommodation within Amounderness House.
The aim is that a specialist provider of serviced offices/managed workspace will lease the whole of the building which will provide a range of office space for co working, meeting and event space with potential for start ups and creative, technical and innovative businesses.
