Oldham bank building for sale

Michael Hunt

A former bank building in Oldham town centre is available at an asking price of £500,000.

Selling agents Scanlans Consultant Surveyors LLP said the Grade II-listed Victorian building has planning consent for leisure, office and residential use including the creation of two upper floors.

The 15,810 sq ft building, owned by Hillstone Developments, was previously a branch of the NatWest bank and is currently vacant. The ground floor comprises a former banking hall and offices.

Scanlans is anticipating an early sale of the building which overlooks Mumps roundabout in Oldham town centre. The building will be opposite the new Metrolink tram station being built as part of the new transport interchange at Mumps.

Phil Manson, an associate at Scanlans, said: "This landmark building stands at one of the main gateways into Oldham. The recent removal of Mumps railway bridge is giving a kick start to the rejuvenation of the Mumps area. We anticipate potential buyers of the bank building will want to refurbish it and redevelop it as a leisure opportunity or it may be suitable for a variety of other commercial uses."
