Commercial and Investment Opportunities at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings

Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings offers an exciting regeneration opportunity to develop buildings and/or land for commercial, residential and community uses around an important industrial heritage site: the world's first iron framed building (known as the Main Mill).

From autumn 2020, Historic England will be inviting expressions of interest from tenants interested in the rental of space in the Main Mill. The upper four floors will be available for occupation from autumn 2021 and will offer a unique work space for businesses and individuals.

Later this year, we will also be inviting businesses to tender for the new café which will be open to all members of the public.

Additionally, we are looking for investors to consider opportunities for new build development on the land surrounding the historic buildings and also to invest in the development of the remaining historic buildings.
