The building will be surplus to requirements when the council moves all its staff into the new civic centre presently being built in Wembley, a mve due in 2013. The Council wants to secure a purchaser prior to vacating the property.
The Town Hall sits on a site of approximately five acres comprising the Town Hall, the Paul Daisley Hall, ancillary buildings and approximately 110 car parking spaces. This 1930’s property is Grade II listed and because of its elevated position, enjoys far reaching views across London, including views of Wembley Stadium.
With the help of Colliers International, who will market the property, the council has prepared a planning brief in conjunction with a heritage report and these set out the extent of development that the Town Hall could accommodate. The council says it may be suitable for a range of alternative uses including residential, hotel, healthcare and leisure and retail.
The council will seek a purchaser who can maximise the value of the property as well as preserve the heritage and importance of this well-known landmark.
Annabel Haan, Director at Colliers International said: “The Town Hall site represents an excellent development opportunity for a variety of uses, subject to planning. We are confident in finding a suitable buyer for this historic and important asset.”
The Town Hall is located in an area which has recently seen a significant amount of on-going development activity, including the new Wembley Stadium, Wembley Arena and surrounding hotels and accommodation by Quintain Estates & Development.
