A LANDMARK building in St Helens town centre - on the edge of an area set for major regeneration - has been listed for sale.

The substantial three-storey property, on the corner of Church Street and Hall Street, is on the market for £150,000.

It has previously been used to house a Chinese restaurant and an Army and Navy store but currently stands empty.

The sit on 87-89 Church Street is listed on Rightmoove as a "development opportunity opposite the Hardshaw Centre, a retail space which is due to be flattened to pave the way for a major regeneration project, featuring a market hall, office, residential and retail spaces.

The listing is being advertised by Morgan Williams Commercial LLP on Rightmove.

It states: "We are delighted to offer for sale a substantial and interesting landmark three-storey with basement corner property, that is sold with full vacant possession on completion.

"The property is somewhat dilapidated and is an ideal opportunity for multi-occupancy mixed-use development.

"It has potential for ground floor and basement commercial uses together with upper floor residential, via the existing separate accesses.

"We are of the opinion that the ground floor and basement could easily be refurbished into a restaurant or coffee shop operation and that the upper floors could be converted into four no. flats, subject to planning.

"The property is constructed of period red brick elevations with stonework features and interesting window openings and surrounds."
