NUE apartments on parade

Marine Parade, Folkestone

No Use Empty has supported the stunning redevelopment on a Grade II listed long-term empty building in Folkestone that was once the home to Army Intelligence during the First World War.

You can read more about the history on Page 13 in our Bumper Edition newsletter

The property was also featured in the BBC World War I Programme The Spies Who Loved Folkestone  which includes an interview with the new owner (10 mins 22 secs in).

Phase I of the project is now complete. Six apartments each offering two bedrooms are currently being marketed for sale with PurpleBricks.

Lt Col. Neame (Property Developer) who has successfully worked with NUE on a previous project said: “I’m excited to be working with NUE again on the Marine Parade project. I had no knowledge of the rich British Military history of the site, but its story has added to the importance of bringing it back into use”.

The finish quality of the residences is to a high specification with attractive detail throughout. The building is arranged over five floors with commanding uninterrupted views overlooking the English Channel. The building has been completely re-modelled with new internal staircases to ensure maximum use of the available space for these desirable properties.

Steve Grimshaw, programme manager for NUE at KCC said: “Projects such as these which have been financially supported with loans from both NUE and Shepway District Council ensures that we are taking a very real joined up approach which will complement the planned redevelopment of Folkestone seafront.”
