Originally built as an office and retail development on the site of a former theatre, Tivoli House occupies a very convenient city centre location. Set on Paragon Street, it is within easy walking distance of all local amenities, together with The Paragon transport interchange mainline station, the newly regenerated Princes Quay and Hull’s famous marina.
This strategic central position makes it ideally situated for workers drawn in by a range of major regeneration projects currently taking place nearby. Named the UK City of Culture for 2017, Kingston upon Hull is witnessing huge investment in its economy and infrastructure, as well as a spectacular transformation of its tourism sector. This, together with the growth in its burgeoning digital industries and the city’s status as the UK capital of renewable energy, is all helping to create new jobs and sustain steady growth in demand for new, high quality accommodation.
To help meet this demand, ES1 proposed a major conversion project that would see Hull City Council’s former offices converted into highly marketable one-bedroom apartments. Aimed squarely at discerning, higher-paying professionals, the units would target one of the fastest growing residential markets in the city.
Local authority planners accepted the proposal in May 2018 and work began soon afterwards. It is scheduled for completion in Q3 of 2019.
