A five-storey building in Swansea’s Kingsway that once housed a YMCA charity shop and a Mothercare store is up for sale.
The block, which fronts Portland Street and The Kingsway, is on the market for just shy of £1.5 million.
A YMCA charity shop most recently occupied the ground floor of 58-60 The Kingsway which has also been home to a Mothercare store and a Co-Operative supermarket.
The online listing for the building said it is “suitable for various uses”. The upper floors, and part of the ground and basement floors have been converted to student accommodation, it adds.
The sale is the latest in a string of buildings that border the newly-redesigned Kingsway being sold or redeveloped in recent years.
In 2019, images were released showing how Orchard House, a four-storey building in The Kingsway, might look after a planned £6m makeover.
The plans include Orchard House rising by two levels, with commercial premises on the ground floor, modern offices on the first floor and 52 one and two-bedroom apartments on the upper levels.
After years of the building being covered in scaffolding, the new look for Orchard House was finally revealed in February and showed a significant improvement on the old dilapidated building. You can read more about it here.
Orchard House’s transformation is part of Swansea Council’s regeneration strategy that aims to facilitate more people living and working in the city centre.
