Commercial property agency, Lisney, has been instructed to invite expressions of interest for a seafront regeneration development opportunity in Glenarm Harbour on behalf of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.
Overlooking the Marina and Glenarm River, the 1.2 acre Eglinton Yard site presents an opportunity to develop a project that will contribute towards the wider regeneration and tourism ambitions of Glenarm.
“Eglinton Yard presents a really unique opportunity for an occupier and or investor to capitalise upon the site’s outstanding location in the heart of Glenarm village and its close proximity to local attractions including Glenarm Glen, Glenarm Castle which plays host to the Dalriada Festival and Glenarm Forest Park which is a popular destination for local walkers and visitors,” said Lisney director Andrew Gawley.
“Whilst planning permission for a mixed commercial and residential scheme was previously granted, we are inviting interested parties to come forward with their own proposals and parties should then make their own enquiries through the planning process.”
The site is strategically positioned fronting New Road, part of the world-renowned Causeway Coastal Route, and directly opposite the new Tourist Information Office which is located within the Old Seaview School.
Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Cllr Lindsay Millar, said: “At this stage, Lisney is seeking expressions of interest for the site which we hope, with the right buyer and scheme, will return this vacant opportunity to a viable and sustainable jewel in Glenarm’s crown.”
