Eastwood New Horizon Church Set for Makeover After Sale
3rd August 2015
An Eastwood church will be transformed into a mixed-use development following a deal brokered by NG Chartered Surveyors. NG acted for The New Horizon Church, in Hilltop, which sold the 4,054 sq ft building to a trio of private investors.
The building was put on the market after the church moved to a larger rented theatre in the area for its Sunday services. Senior pastor Andy Dilnot said he has big plans for the future of the church. He said: “We have a vision of building a large church complex that will incorporate a 500 seat auditorium, a community centre, conference centre, a micro-business centre and a coffee house for the purpose of serving the community and making a positive change across the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and surrounding region.
“We came to the decision to put the old church building on the market with NG Surveyors, who recently successfully marketed and saw to completion the sale of the building.” NG has also been retained by the new owners to market the new development.
Thomas Sotiros, one of the buyers, said: “We’re planning two apartments, both with two bedrooms, and two retail units, one at 2,000 sq ft, the other 1,000 sq ft. The larger unit will have A5 use for restaurant. “We’re pleased to retain NG to market our development, and they were extremely helpful during the acquisition.
”Jonathon Seddon, director at NG, said: “It’s been great to be involved in this deal, as it represents a success story for everyone involved. “Our clients at the New Horizon Church have big plans to build a new venue called Horizon City, and we wish them all the best in the future. “We’re also delighted to be retained by the new owners of the church in Hilltop, as they embark on their ambitious venture to turn the building into a real asset for the local community. “We’ll be using our local market knowledge to ensure that we get them the right occupiers at the right time. We’re looking forward to the challenge.”
