Worksop's young professionals 'potty' over luxury development

22nd September 2015 Print

A former office block on Potter Street in Worksop will be turned into 12 luxury apartments in a bid to attract young professionals to the area.

Nottingham based Jenner Bailey bought the vacant office block in December 2014 and after being granted planning permission in February this year, the project which is expected to take nine months to complete, finally began this month.

Managing Director at Jenner Bailey, Arran Bailey, 29, has ambitious plans for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and believes that investing in Potter Street is a fantastic opportunity to bring extra footfall to the area and boost the local economy.

He said: “We already have several investments in Worksop and this opportunity was a natural progression for us. There is a lack of one and two bed luxury apartments in the area and this project will offer luxury accommodation for young professionals and help to create a positive image.

“The building is a vocal point for the market place in Worksop and we saw an opportunity to regenerate a building and bring it back into use. I always look to undertake projects that will lead to wider regeneration and I am sure that this project will benefit local residents and business owners.”

Worksop lies on the A57 with links to the A1, M1 and A60, which allows easier transport and distribution in the area; this explains why Worksop is home to Wilkinson and B&Q centres.

Mr Bailey added: “It has been a very busy few months for everyone at Jenner Bailey, we have invested wisely and have reaped some fantastic results from our projects.”
