What’s new in High Street?
After waiting for 6 years, our neighbouring building owner has finally agreed to put his building on the market.
It has gone from this:
With a bit of “discussion” we have managed to get a better outcome for everyone. (There was no personal feud here, we wish the previous owner all the best, his circumstances were difficult to say the least).
The new local owner (not us) is an excellent choice and we are looking forward to the imminent demolition of this eyesore. I believe this is already under discussion.
It’s a win win! A very rare occurrence these days in Christchurch land deals.
The new owner, who as you will see, I have not named yet, is planning a new building. But first the demo will occur. Our units will look a lot better, some fencing can be removed and it will make the leasing of our building considerably easier.
My guess is we will get a modern frontage and rear, that will look amazing wedged between us old “dungers”.
A pity that it had to take 6 years, with no help from the “powers that be”. Useless bunch governments and councils.. but I would say that.
One down, one to go, on to the other side now.
