HSA makes further acquisition
Serviced accommodation specialists Hull Serviced Apartments have added to their growing portfolio of properties, by doing a deal to become the new owners of the landmark building which was formerly home to East Hull Swimming Baths on Holderness Road in Hull.
Known as HSA, the company already owns and operates the old Charterhouse School on Wincolmlee, Kingston Villas in Pearson Park, and the James Reckitt Library building. They are also the company behind the regeneration of the former Endsleigh Centre and Convent on Beverley High Road, and the historic Winding House on Victoria Dock, both of which are now nearing completion and being readied to be re-launched as HSA properties.
HSA Managing Director James Ledger said of the deal, “Ever since East Hull Baths closed at the start of last year, we’ve been keen to take it on, so we are delighted to now be its new owners. It is situated just a few yards from one of our existing properties, The James Reckitt Library, which contains a range of serviced apartments, for which demand and occupancy is consistently high, due to its proximity to both the city centre and the east of the city, including the docks. It is therefore particularly popular with those who visit and work in the city regularly in the Renewable energy and related Offshore industries.”
Of their plans for the new location he added “It is a very attractive building, and fits well with our ethos of bringing properties of historical and architectural value back into daily use, preserving and enhancing their original heritage, aesthetics and features, whilst giving the interiors a respectfully contemporary twist. Our aim is always to create a ‘home from home’ for those visiting the city and wanting their own living space rather than just a hotel room.”
There is further good news on the horizon too, as he also confirmed that HSA plans to double its workforce in the coming months to ensure they keep pace with both the growing demand for their current properties, and the company’s ambitious expansion plans this year.
