A former ballroom that has fallen into disrepair could be in line for major renovations.

The Ministry of Public Works has asked for expressions of interest to renovate and run the Grade 2 listed building in Admiralty House Park.

The Pembroke landmark, which has also been used as a community centre, comes with almost half an acre of land, an ancillary building and sits in a national park.

The request said: “It was built of traditional Bermuda stone construction with timber flooring and roof members and extensive redevelopment works are required to have it restored.

“Full structural and services investigations are therefore required to ascertain the full details of structural and service works required.

“Consideration will be given to any appropriate or suitable use and necessary redevelopment works required to bring the property to the standard required for the proposed use.”

The notice asked for proposals for redevelopment, terms of leasehold interest that would be required, with rental “to be in lieu of proposed capital works to the property” as well as preliminary planning and building consent consultations for redevelopment work and use.

The request added: “No detailed architectural designs shall be required for the submission at this initial expression of interest stage, but the proposal will be considered as the basis for detailed redevelopment proposal that will be required in the subsequent stage, if such initial proposal is considered by the department of public lands and buildings to be feasible and viable.”

Proposals should be delivered to the Ministry of Public Works office by 3pm on January 31.
