21 Hobson Street
21 Hobson Street has been unoccupied since it was vacated by Gala Bingo in 2009. In 2011 the property was let to a leisure company who never took occupation following the refusal of a late night licence for a live music venue. GDS Estates subsequently took back possession and instructed a retail and leisure specialist and a promoter to explore options for the building. Unfortunately their efforts were unsuccessful. Subsequent attempts to market the building, some of them sustained, have also proven unsuccessful.
