Allenby Commercial Completes Renovation Project

The £1.2 million renovation of two historic riverside properties in Hull has just been completed by Allenby Commercial. The company has converted Danish Buildings and the adjoining grade II-listed Bayles House into 17 studios aimed at creative business.

“We’re thrilled to see work complete on this historic Hull building, which we were pleased to support through the Local Growth Fund. Not only has it supported the regeneration of an important building in the Old Town, it has also supported the creation of new office space and enabled start-ups and existing businesses to grow their operations in a city centre location,” said Stephen Parnaby , chair of the Humber LEP.

The project has been supported with £250,000 from the government’s Local Growth Fund, secured by the Humber LEP, in support of the Northern Powerhouse initiative.

“The support of Humber LEP was a very significant factor in the whole project. It enabled us to carry out much more of the restoration work which has become a key feature of both buildings,” added Charlie Allenby, business development manager at Allenby Commercial.

Parts of the property date back to the 17th century. Bayles House was originally built as a house in the 18th century and underwent alterations later that century and in the mid-19th century. It was listed in 1952 and sits next to the iconic Scale Lane Bridge and the Lion & Key pub, and opposite Ye Olde Black Boy.
