Jones Lang LaSalle appointed to find a buyer for Felixstowe’s Spa Pavilion

London,  4th December 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle has been  appointed  by Suffolk Coastal District Council to market the freehold of the Spa Pavilion, an art deco property in the picturesque seaside resort of Felixstowe, Suffolk.

The substantial detached building comprises an 892-seat auditorium and 140-cover restaurant, bar and ice cream parlour along with associated car parking and drop off /pick up area. The Spa is situated next to the Seafront Gardens which, as part of an on-going regeneration programme for Felixstowe, have been awarded £2.8million for restoration to attract more visitors to the resort.

According to Jones Lang LaSalle, the Spa Pavilion’s seaside setting makes the property a unique investment opportunity which may suit a range of alternative redevelopment uses, subject to planning.

Harry Hawksby, director Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels who is handling the sale, said: “The Spa Pavilion is a well-established venue which we believe offers a number of avenues to create opportunities which add value under the direct control of a commercial operator. “

“Alternatively, the Council has indicated that it would be particularly supportive of proposed uses that enhance the tourist and cultural facilities on offer in Felixstowe, subject to the appropriate statutory consents.  We are holding an open viewing on Thursday 13th December and invite all interested parties”

Spa Pavilion has been attracting theatre-goers for over 75 years
