Sell New Group are delighted to offer for sale this Grade II listed former Mill set across six floors with development potential, located in Halifax just off Old Lane and within easy reach of the town centre. Planning was approved from 2008 for 54 apartments plus commercial space in the mill itself, plus 2 houses in the adjacent boiler house.

The previous proposal could be adapted in a new planning application to increase the scope and number of units much further, for example by replacing the proposed commercial space with residential units, increasing residential density in the mill building to create more units, by adding an additional floor to the mill building to create panoramic penthouses, etc.

Description

This vacant Grade II listed former mill is set across 6 floors and the grounds are bordered by significant woodland. Halifax town centre is south of the development, less than one mile from the site.
The historic Mill is notable as the oldest and largest surviving example of a multi-storey, steam-powered, iron-framed textile mill.
This is a sought after and well-respected residential area close to shops, local schooling and within ten minutes’ walk to the town centre.
Also nearby are the popular Dean Clough development with many businesses, shops, and restaurants, and the Broad Street Plaza complex complete with cinema and other entertainment and food outlets.
Halifax is also home to the beautiful and popular Piece Hall, the National Children’s Museum, and many other destinations.

Sizes
From the 2008 planning application proposals:
Commercial spaces in Mill: 2691 Sq ft
Residential space in Mill: 38,575 Sq ft
Boiler house: 3,116 Sq ft

Key features

Fantastic development opportunity, subject to new planning proposal.

Rare opportunity to acquire a Grade II listed former Mill extending to approximately 41,000 Sqft

Latest lapsed planning permission dated 2008 was for converting the historic Mill into 54 apartments, two houses, plus commercial space.

(Other adjacent land available by separate negotiation)

The previous proposal could be adapted in a new planning application to increase the scope and number of units much further, for example by replacing the proposed commercial space with residential units, increasing residential density in the mill building to create more units, by adding an additional floor to the mill building to create panoramic penthouses, etc.

The mill has the potential to become an exclusive development and a landmark for Halifax.

The mill also offers many other potential alternative uses, such as office / commercial space, care home, etc. (STP)
