To Let

LOCATION

The seaside village of Cockenzie is located 13 miles east of Edinburgh and is one of a cluster of settlements on this particular stretch of East Lothian coastline. Longniddry and Prestonpans are all in close proximity with Port Seton its nearest neighbour.

Cockenzie Business Hub enjoys prominent roadside frontage on the north side of Edinburgh Road, close to the junction with East Lorimer Place. It benefits from good access to the A1 trunk road with the nearest junction only 1 mile away.

Following the closure of nearby Cockenzie Power Station in 2013, the area has begun to go through a period of economic change with a new energy park proposed for the former power station site. Also, within the next decade, up to 6,000 new homes and community facilities are planned for the former Blindwells Opencast Mine less than a mile from Cockenzie.

Public transport, meanwhile, is widely available with regular bus and rail services. The train stations of Longniddry and Prestonpans are located within 3 miles and 2 miles respectively offering regular rail services to Edinburgh Waverley.

DESCRIPTION

The subjects comprise a building of traditional sandstone construction with a slate pitched roof arranged over two floors, with a central atrium and car parking to the front and rear.

Dating back to 1865 the building was originally Cockenzie School and this history of education is emphasized by some of the features such as the high ceilings enjoyed in the suites. The building extends to approximately 7,055 sq ft capable of accommodating up to 20 enterprises in business suites of varying sizes.

The ground floor suites are configured off a central corridor which leads through to a bright and airy central atrium with stores and WC facilities set off to the side. The upper floor consists of further offices, a large meeting room, tea prep and further WC facilities.

The business suites are suitable for a variety of uses and current occupiers include: Heavy Sound CIC, Greentrax Recordings, Andrew Crummy, Funki Fingers, and Asbestos Surveys and Advice.
