Developer Newby, is set to complete the redevelopment of The Station in Ripon – a former two-storey public house and hotel.
The building has been closed and neglected for many years, it has now beome 15 communal living units for rent – a House of Multiple Occupancy or HMO.
The 2,717 sq ft property, including communal space, will consist of 5 studios with fully tiled en-suites, walk in showers and integrated kitchens; 8 en-suite double bedrooms with shared living, study and kitchen space and 2 apartments.
Newby acquired the property in 2013 with plans to regenerate the site to offer high quality, rental accommodation which will be available from October 2018 to rent directly from the developer.
Nick Moody, Director at Newby, said:
We are delighted to be nearing completion on The Station to deliver first class, unique rental accommodation in the vibrant city of Ripon. We have worked in close collaboration with Harrogate Borough Council to develop a scheme that not only regenerates a neglected, vacant site to provide much needed high quality rental opportunities, but also remains sensitive to the surrounding buildings and historical heritage of Ripon.
The Station development brings something new to the city of Ripon and will certainly appeal to millennials and professionals looking for the ‘community’ feel of co-living space. As well as being home to the beautiful Ripon cathedral, it has a fantastic racecourse and popular local attractions and amenities, making it a great place to live with easy access to commuter networks.
