Leasehold Price: £60,000

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this substantial sized investment opportunity located in the heart of Basildon. The property was formerally trading as Jessie Lou's, a contemporary rustic restaurant

The property is in the centre of the town, making it an ideal investment opportunity. The surrounding area is currently under major regeneration, with new businesses creating more interests.

The function room is a definite area of potential that could easily be adapted to suit any business.

There are many reasons to invest in this opportunity including:

  • Central town location
  • A major regeneration area with cinema due to be complete at the end of 2020
  • Fully refurbished premises

This superb leasehold investment is located on East Walk, Basildon, Essex, which is a town that is undergoing a program of regeneration, which includes the new cinema complex which is being built close by.

Basildon has a population of 127,123 and is a growing town that is undergoing a regeneration program in the town centre where the property is positioned. The Basildon town centre master plan was approved in December 2012 and ensures that strong plans are in place to guide future development and ensure the viability of the town centre is secured now and in the future.

A vibrant and popular town centre that people want to use, visit and live in is vital to support the needs of local residents and businesses. The approved masterplan shows how a new 8-12 screen state of the art cinema could be the centrepiece of a remodelled East Square, a development that will become a new focus for the town, attracting new shops, family restaurants and coffee shops and providing Basildon with an evening economy.
