The Fire Station occupies a very prominent position on the corner of Copenhagen Street and Deansway, near to the Cathedral in Worcester City Centre. Worcester is a Cathedral City with a population of just under a 100,000 on the banks of the River Severn. The City is accessed via Junctions 6 and 7 of the M5 motorway. The City has a thriving University, first class rugby and cricket teams, a picturesque racecourse adjacent to the River Severn and an active arts scene. It has an excellent retail offering with the CrownGate Shopping Centre as the focal destination although there are a number of historic streets in the City providing a range of independent boutique shops.The three storey property sits prominently at the junction of Deansway and Copenhagen Street but also has a further frontage to historic Fish Street. The building was constructed between 1939 and 1941 and designed by architect Percy Thomas who also designed the former police station building directly opposite. The building is not identified as a Heritage Asset although it is located within the Historic City Conservation Area and is in the shadow of Worcester Cathedral. The buildings are arranged around a central courtyard, with vehicular access off Fish Street. Internally the building provides a series of offices, stores, workshops and appliance bays, together with sleeping accommodation, common rooms and welfare facilities normally associated with an operational fire station. The building is recognised by Worcester City Council as being particularly important as part of the regeneration of the City Centre. A range of appropriate City Centre uses will be supported by local planning policy. These uses would include hotel, leisure, office, retail and residential uses. A Development Brief and Site Analysis document produced by Worcester City Council is available within the Information Pack, both of which discuss the building in context of its surroundings and potential uses.GROUND FLOOR Main Building - 824 sq m (8,869 sq ft) Annexe - 103 sq m (1,109 sq ft) Basement - 78 sq m (840 sq ft) FIRST FLOOR Main Building - 650 sq m (6,996 sq ft) Annexe - 98 sq m (1,055 sq ft) SECOND FLOOR Main Building - 650 sq m (6,996 sq ft) Annexe - 98 sq m (1,055 sq ft) TOTAL GIA - 2,501 sq m (26,920 sq ft) The estimated total site area is 0.16 hectares (0.39 acres).
