Old town building to benefit from Government grant

A well-known city centre building will be restored and reopened thanks to a Government Levelling Up Grant, awarded by Hull City Council.

A Decision Record published today confirms that the ground floor of 94 Alfred Gelder Street, known locally as the most recent location of the Kardomah arts venue and cafe, will benefit from the refurbishment of the two commercial units.

A grant of £201,000 will be matched by applicant Krish Ventures GBR Limited, and used to create a flexible open co-working space and a coffee counter and commercial kitchen.

Funding will include the installation of new flooring, sound insulation, toilets, heating and air conditioning, as well as furniture and fittings.

The project will create six full-time jobs.

Garry Taylor, Assistant director for major projects, culture & place, said: “94 Alfred Gelder Street is a prominent building in the city centre and to have the space open to the public again is great news.

“The Levelling Up Fund continues to provide opportunities across the city centre to bring disused properties back into use. This is another excellent example of that.”
