Gerald Eve has been instructed to sell a prominent nightclub on 1.965 acre site in the heart of Rotherham’s £2bn Renaissance Project regeneration.
The agent is selling the freehold of the 22,000 sq ft Liquid & Envy nightclub for Luminar Leisure which comes with 150 car-park spaces. It is located on the corner of Brinsworth Street and the south side of Main Street in Rotherham. It is 200m from the new five-storey 172,000 sq ft office complex Riverside House currently being constructed for Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. Just across the road from Riverside House is Liverpool-based company Iliad’s All Saints’ Quarter a £37m mixed-use scheme which will help to create a vibrant town centre and a café-culture atmosphere along the waterfront, bringing together apartments, shops and offices.
Behind the nightclub site work has just started on a new 12,000 seat stadium for Rotherham United FC.
Gerald Eve leisure partner Chris Ford said: “We expect interest both from operators who want to continue running the venue as a club and also from developers looking to participate in Rotherham’s ambitious rejuvenation plans. The vendor has said it may consider taking back a short term lease of the nightclub if that would be of interest to developers.”
