It has been something of a eyesore in the middle of Norwich's London Street for several years.
But now Norwich-based commercial property specialists Roche Retail have announced the completion of two new leases in the centre of Norwich - one of which means that all the shop fronts in London Street are now let.
Salon Sixty Six, below, has opened at 66 London Street, following a comprehensive refurbishment of the entire building both inside and out.
Anglian Academy of Hair has taken a new lease on the entire building that comprises 1,275 sq ft of ground floor and ancillary accommodation totalling 1,630 sq ft. Salon Sixty Six is a new hairdressers showcasing the Academy's skills.
Roche Retail negotiated a surrender of the existing tenant's lease and a new lease with the landlord.
Adrian Fennell of Roche Retail, said: 'This was a significant letting for the eastern end of London Street and now this meant there were no retail vacancies in the entire street, which mirrors the continuing strengthening of Norwich's retail market, where vacancy levels are at an historic low.'
In a second deal, Sainsbury's has signed a new lease on 9-13 St Stephens Street with a new convenience store set to open early next year. The retailer is set to begin fitting out the new store shortly.
