CORN EXCHANGE SUCCESS
The Corn Exchange in Crickhowell is complete. We have converted the former pub – a listed building – into three shops and three flats, the majority of which were let within two months of handing over the keys.
We’ve been back to snag any problems which have arisen as the new tenants have moved in and this historic building has been given a new life.
Corn Exchange Crickhowell Ltd’s Communications Director, Tim Jones, said: “It is testiment to the quality of the finish in the new Corn Exchange that we have been able to attract two new retail tenants and two residential tenants already and we are grateful to Celtic for quickly sorting any minor issues which have arisen.”
Celtic’s Project Director, Tudor Vers, was so impressed with this community-led scheme that he became a shareholder. He handed over the keys to Managing Director, Dean Christy, just before Christmas.
Tudor Vers said: “There is an amazing community spirit in Crickhowell and it was great to be part of it. We felt it every day we were there.
Dean Christy said: “This was an incredibly challenging project. This old building threw up problems at every turn but Tudor and his team worked with us to find solutions within a very limited budget – we could not have done it without them. ”
