guild house Eddisons

Landmark building brought to the market for sale in Peterborough

Acting on behalf of Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), the Peterborough office of Eddisons have today launched the marketing of a freehold landmark building on the fringe of Peterborough City Centre.

Guild House on Oundle Road currently houses ARU’s Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care which is moving into the new Peterborough University Campus, with the first intake of new students arriving at that facility in September2022.

Guild House is an extensive former office building extending to over 60,000 sq ft on a site of 3.69 Acres. Located in a prominent position fronting Oundle Road, it is in close proximity to the City Centre with easy access to the central shopping and leisure areas, mainline railway station and central bus and coach stations.

Julian Welch, Director at Eddisons who is leading the disposal on behalf of ARU commented ‘Guild House represents a superb opportunity to acquire a landmark building on a large site in a prominent edge of City centre location. Whilst currently used by ARU as an education facility, the property also lends itself to a wide range of alternative uses including as offices, as a hotel, for medical purposes and indeed for conversion to residential.’

He added ‘the property sits on a large site with a number of areas that have potential for further development, subject to planning consents being obtained. Buildings of this nature do not come to the market very often in Peterborough and we are sure that there will be strong demand from prospective purchasers looking to invest in one of the fast growing Cities in the UK’.
