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.

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.
