Features and description


The property comprises a substantial three storey mid terrace building that is fitted out and has been used as a gym for many years, with parking outside for around 100 vehicles.

The property sits mid-way along the building known as Witham Park House and previously known as the 'Titanic Works'.

Laid out over three floors, the accommodation has the swimming pool and changing rooms, together with a children's creche at ground floor level, the gym area, fitness rooms and café on the first floor and finally further fitness rooms and the plant areas on the second floor.

There is lift access as well as various stairwells between the different floor levels. The vast majority of the M&E has been left insitu ready for use by an incoming occupier. To fully appreciate the scale of the accommodation and the extent of the existing fit out we would strongly recommend undertaking a viewing of the property.

EPC: C56

The property enjoys an easily accessible location just off Great Northern Terrace, about half a mile to the south east of Lincoln City Centre. The surrounding area is mixed use in character with the predominant use in the immediate vicinity being office use, with nearby occupiers including Lincolnshire County Council and the local nhs Trust.

The existing fitness offer in the city is well dispersed, with the majority located around the south-west quadrant, meaning that there is an extensive catchment including the villages to the south east of Lincoln, for the operator of this fitness centre to draw from.

Lincoln is the administrative and main shopping centre for the County of Lincolnshire with an urban population of circa 130,000 and a total catchment population of close to 550,000, giving a total catchment spend of over £985 million. It is also a growing University city with over 15,000 students and staff based on the main campus in Lincoln, which contributes an estimated £250,000,000 to the local economy. The university is located about a 1/3 of a mile to the west of the city centre, so again within easy reach of the subject property.

We understand that main services are available and connected to the property. These have not been tested and interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries to the relevant utility service providers in this regard.
