Inverness department store conversion delivers 75 homes
February 9 2023
A former department store in Inverness has been transformed into 53 apartments following a major restoration programme.
The Arnotts Building on Union Street had lain vacant since 2003 with the departure of its last tenant but has been brought back to life by a £12.5m investment by HHA, The Highland Council, Scottish Government, and Inverness City Region Deal.
This work has seen the B-listed Italianate facade made as good as new together with the refurbishment of six ground-floor shopfronts, with upper floors turned to residential use.
Solid timber doors fronting the street provide access to the homes with shutters hiding services and bin store access.
Part of a broader redevelopment effort by Swilken Estates and Ollier Smurthwaite Architects the first phase of work was delivered by Forthpoint and IBI Joiners.
