Redundant office conversion to residential by Devonshire Homes in Exeter25th November 2013

Redundant offices to be transformed by Devonshire Homes in ExeterA redundant office building in Exeter’s Southernhay district is set to be transformed by regional property developer Devonshire Homes.

The company completed the purchase on 22 November and has planning permission to convert the vacant Trinity Court office complex into a top-end residential apartment development.

Devonshire Homes will convert the site into 27 apartments with the potential to include two three-bed penthouses subject to an additional planning submission.

Steve Russell, Managing Director at Devonshire Homes, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to utilise an existing building to provide new homes.”

The project follows on from the developer’s high-end £10m conversion and renovation of a 19th century historic estate in Clifton near Bristol, and the regeneration of two separate vacant hospital sites in the company’s home town of Tiverton.

Devonshire Homes secured the development opportunity in partnership with Taunton property advice practice Harcourt Kerr. Philip Kerr of Harcourt Kerr said: “We identified the potential for this commercial conversion project in September and have secured the sale and planning in little over two months.

“Trinity Court has stood empty for some years and it will be beneficial for the immediate community to see a quality residential development that will further increase footfall into the area.”

Initial demolition works are scheduled to start immediately with the commencement of the construction element early in the New Year
