Proposals sought for former Brodick terminal building

CALEDONIAN Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) is inviting proposals to transform the former terminal building at Brodick, after the original project became ‘unviable’.

Following the completion of the new ferry terminal in 2018, CMAL advertised on the open market for proposals to turn the building into a space, with an emphasis on delivering community benefits.

The successful proposal intended to turn the venue into a cinema. However, primarily due to the post-pandemic rise in the cost of construction materials, CMAL said this project is no longer being carried forward.

Karen Jamieson, buildings and property manager at CMAL, said, “We are very disappointed that the project to transform the former ticket office into a cinema will not go ahead.  However, we fully appreciate the circumstances, and have agreed to part ways with the current tenant.

“This does mean we are once again offering the opportunity for a new tenant to submit proposals for an alternative use for this well positioned building. Any proposed use will have to work in harmony with the surrounding ferry terminal and we are keen to deliver a use that will benefit Brodick and the wider island community.”

Further information is available from the letting agent, Graham + Sibbald, including particulars, proposal guidance and closing date.
