Plymouth: Ship Building To Set Sail Again
The iconic Ship building in Derriford, once a hive of industry as the bustling headquarters of the Plymouth Herald and Western Morning News, has been given a last-minute reprieve from the threat of demolition with the announcement that it has been acquired by a South West property developer.
Burrington Estates, which has made a name for itself preserving historic buildings and returning them to their former glory, has delighted Plymouth City Council and local campaigners by vowing to save this eye-catching glass-and-steel building.
The derelict building – designed by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw and nicknamed The Ship because of its distinctive shape – is set to be given a new lease of life as the main Plymouth site for Thrive Hubs, an innovative combination of flexible, inspiring and professional environments for new and growing businesses and entrepreneurs.
Two or three smaller centres around the city are due to launch imminently, with the aim of rolling the Thrive model out to other UK cities soon.
Mark Edworthy, Chairman of Burrington Estates and founder of Thrive Hubs, comments:
“Saving Plymouth’s glass Ship building marks an investment of £5 million and we look forward to working alongside Plymouth City Council to ensure The Ship reaches its full potential within the city.
