The Albany Galleries is a Grade II listed high street property that has huge potential for restaurant/café, bar, boutique cinema/theatre. The property comprises a total area of circa 865 sq m (9,311 sq ft). It retains many fine original period features including high ceilings, winding staircase, attractive atriums and rear courtyard garden. The basement, ground and first floors would suit restaurant/café (A3 use) and/or bar/drinking establishment (A4 use). The first floor could include a function room forming part of a restaurant or bar or potentially a boutique cinema/theatre (D1/Sui Generis use). The second and third floors would suit ancillary/ office/manager's/staff accommodation. In addition, the ground and basement floors would suit A1 use and the upper floors C3 use. The building has been stripped out internally to expose the original period features. External works have been undertaken including repairs to the front of the building in accordance with Sefton Council's guidelines. Southport has recently experienced a significant amount of inward investment with many areas being upgraded. Neighbouring occupiers include HSBC, Patisserie Valerie, Café Nero, Bistrot Pierre and Waterstones.
