Silo Building Sale
Interesting Plans Afoot
Conversion Project: The Old Silo, Mount Wellington Mine, Truro, Cornwall
A big thankyou to one of our eagle eyed readers who emailed us with this interesting development project so that we could share it with others who follow the Unique Property Bulletin.
The old silo project is intended to become a new home or offices by converting one of the UK’s largest reinforced ore silo’s. A clever adaptation uses an industrial building that was completed in 1975 – with a short lifespan – being decommissioned in 1978, after which it has remained unused. It is reinforced with steel so that it could contain around 2,000 tons of metal ores, mostly tin and copper.
There are fine views over Cornwall’s idyllic countryside with the contrasting brutality of the retention of some of the original concrete silo walls. The beauty of working with a circular building is that it is visually dynamic – the surfaces and fixtures carry one’s eye continuously around any room, and the 360 degree views beyond. Providing approximately 580 m2 (around 6,200 sq feet) of accommodation together with parking for ten cars, there is another acre of serviced brownfield development land available on the adjacent plot, by separate negotiation.
