Situated in the core of the Ilkeston high street, between 10b-14 Bath Street, the regeneration will be completed by design-led development specialist group, OHC Property Group, with construction due to start and finish in 2022.
Director of OHC Property Group, James Brecknock, said: “Ilkeston has plans for vast regeneration and is forecasted for major growth over the years to come. The town itself is charming, historic and thriving. We are delighted to have received planning permission to convert the historic 19th century building into a mixed-use development.
“Both the apartment and retail units will provide a high-specification and a tailored finish. Victoria House will be the first development in Ilkeston that will use solar power and we want our residents to enjoy the long-term benefits this power source brings. We’re going to deliver a premium specification and design to Bath Street and the team is looking forward to getting started with construction.”
A key aim is to boost local businesses outlets in the high street and bring jobs and growth to the local community and draw in more occupants back to the town community.
“We’ve recently launched the retail units to let, and we would like to agree long term tenancies with budding retailers in both units,” Mr Brecknock added.
“Ilkeston Town Centre is certainly experiencing a resurgence of former glories and we are delighted to be in situ with Victoria House and we look forward to contributing to the town’s growth.”
