Queen’s Warehouse available to rent
The Corporation of St George is inviting expressions of interest for the rental of some or all of the space in the Queen’s Warehouse, the former home of the World Heritage Centre.
Courtney Trott, town administrator, said: “We have had a few people come to have a look at it. That is promising – and we do expect more people to express an interest.”
The building on Penno’s Wharf houses some 9,000 square feet of space over two floors.
The Corporation says the building has sufficient space to accommodate multiple vendors, and it will entertain proposals for the entire space and/or a portion of the space.
The building includes restroom facilities, a theatre, a kitchen, and an elevator.
Parking is available nearby at the Penno’s Wharf car park.
The St George’s Foundation locked the doors of the WHC on December 31, and handed the keys back to the Corporation.
The attraction featured a range of displays about Bermudian heritage and history, a 45-seat theatre and space for events. It opened in 2006.
The foundation shut the WHC last year because of the Covid-19 pandemic. It announced in November that the WHC would not reopen.
Interested parties are invited to contact Mr Trott to set up an appointment to view. He can be reached at 297-1532 or email@example.com.
An advertisement by the Corporation stipulates that anyone expressing interest will be required to submit a business plan prior to February 12, but Mr Trott said that such plans will be accepted until the close of business on the 12th.
