A Grade 2 listed Victorian landmark building in the centre of Leamington is set for a 21st century makeover as luxury high-tech apartments.

With the support of Leamington law firm Blythe Liggins, the former offices on the corner of Waterloo Place have been empty for a number of years after an established firm of solicitors relocated their headquarters to larger out-of -town premises.

The building, which includes an original Victorian wrought iron balcony around the first floor, has been purchased by Leamington developers Hatchback Ltd, which has a large portfolio of commercial and residential properties, including the former Law Society building at Victoria Court on Dormer Place which is now home for TATA Steel, the owners of Jaguar Land Rover and games giant SEGA.

Hardeep Malle, managing director of Hatchback Ltd, said: “We have very ambitious plans to convert this splendid building into 13 luxury apartments which will each have some additional high-tech features providing a contemporary feel to this listed landmark building.

“It has been empty for many years which is why we want to bring it back to its former glory, as well as provide superb three, two and one-bedroomed accommodation with residential parking. Leamington is a much sought-after location and these homes will be attractive to people who already live here and to those looking to re-locate to this smart spa town,” added Mr Malle who has taken over the reins of the business from his father, Shalbinder Singh Malle, who founded Hatchback more than 30 years ago.

Tim Lester, a partner at Blythe Liggins who handled the conveyancing, has fond memories as a former employee at the law firm that previously occupied the building.“It is great to see that this lovely building where I spent my formative years and also met my wife, is being brought back to life by a Leamington-based company that has built a strong reputation in the area,” he said.
