Offices at Leicester Fire Station are hot property

The open-plan offices offer more than 3,000ft2 of space, including a meeting room, private office and kitchen area, plus there are male and female WCs with shower facilities in the highly individual period building.

The offices also come with car parking for up to five cars on site. The 1920s Grade II-listed fire station was given a £3.5 million makeover in 2010 and named Leicester’s most impressive restoration project by the Leicester Civic Society in 2011.

A spokesperson for Leicestershire Fire Service said: “Following the consolidation of staff at our HQ building at Birstall, we have a defined area on the first floor at Central Fire and Rescue Station from which we can generate income by renting out.

Fire Authority Property Advisor Jonathan Bishop, said: “The station is a historic and iconic Leicester building, which would enhance any business working from there. Interested parties should contact Mather Jamie, who are acting on behalf of Bishop Property Consultants.”

Alex Reid, Director of Mather Jamie, said: “Businesses looking for offices that are a little out of the ordinary, but still modern and well located, should consider the first floor accommodation at Leicester’s Central Fire Station. “It can easily be accessed from the train station, has car parking, and the offices themselves have been fully refurbished as part of an award winning restoration project.

With quality office space at a premium in Leicester, one of the fastest growing cities in the region, we expect this to generate a lot of interest.”
