Kinross Town Hall brought back to life following a decade of neglect
November 22 2018
Kinross Town Hall has resumed its place at the heart of the towns High Street following its £1.5m conversion to nine apartments.
Abandoned by Perth & Kinross Council in 2003 the local landmark had lain empty for over a decade before being brought back to life following a 12-month refurbishment programme.
The clock tower, post office and library have each been subdivided to form a variety of townhouses and flats earmarked for first time buyers and downsizers.
Development manager Simon Leeman, commented: “We are delighted to have brought back to life a significant historical building group that has played such an important role to Kinross.
“The nature of this development, with the location and character of the building, has helped to create a distinct form of urban town living.”
Design work for the conversion was undertaken by Edinburgh MI.
An open plaza, a focal point for Kinross, would have been a better option, than flats with zero parking facilities or outdoor space.
Too much reverence is afforded to obsolete, energy inefficient buildings.
