The Grange is the business for Stevenston

Interest is growing in a brand new business centre built by Irvine Bay Regeneration Company in the heart of Stevenston.

The Grange – named after the former cinema and bingo hall which previously stood on the site – is nearing completion and will provide flexible business, retail and workshop space in small unit size. The accommodation will total some 1,000 sq m.


Already Irvine Bay has received a substantial number of notes of interest from businesses keen to make use of the top-quality, highly specified space – including businesses that would be new to the area.

Patrick Wiggins, Chief Executive of Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, said: “The business centre will be completed and ready for occupation by the beginning of next year.

“The development responds to the need for good quality business accommodation to stimulate the local economy, encourage new businesses to start and to attract business relocation into the area. I am confident it will play a big role in helping to bring businesses to Stevenston, creating jobs in the process, as well as ensuring local businesses can grow and stay in the town.

“It will provide a boost to the town, and it is suitable that a building on this site continues to play a vital role for Stevenston. The Grange cinema was once a big part of the town’s life, and now we hope this building will help bring new life to the town.”

All-inclusive rent is available from £450 plus vat per calendar month, with flexible lease periods of a year and longer. First floor offices range from 280 sq ft, with commercial space/workshops on the ground floor starting at 820 sq ft and going up to 1,932 sq ft. Retail space of 2,400 sq ft is also included in the centre.

The offices are served by a common entrance lobby, and benefit from nearby public transport links and car parking.

Demolition work on the previous building on the site was completed in December 2009. A planning application was submitted in March 2010. The main contractor for the project, Maxi Construction Ltd, was appointed in early October 2010 and the build started in late November 2010.
