Old Library: New Tenant Sought

Dec 24, 2015 | News

An exciting business opportunity to work in partnership with the  Telegraph Hill Centre and St Catherine’s Church The Old Library – formerly known as Cafe Fed

The space above the Hill Station, formerly known as Cafe Fed is seeking a new tenant.

Over the last 40 years this space has been a library, a cafe and a sixth form common room.  This is a terrific space, with great views over London and access to the creative hubs of both the Telegraph Hill Centre and the Hill Station, the amenities of Telegraph Hill, Nunhead and Brockley, with good transport links to central London, and the continent via St Pancras, and ample free street parking.

We are looking for new tenants to take that space who will fit with the feel and ethos of the Telegraph Hill Centre.

The successful tenant would outline a business proposal that would :

  • be of benefit to the community;
  • work creatively and collaboratively with the Centre;
  • be financially viable and stable;
  • have a proven track-record; and
  • seek a tenancy for a minimum of five years.

The Old Library is a self-contained, single storey open plan space, partitioned into two large working areas (Units 1 and 2) with an additional office, conference or storage room plus a galley kitchen and toilets to the rear. The facility forms a part of the Telegraph Hill Centre of which St Catherine’s Church is the freeholder.

  • Unit 1 approx. 143 sq.m.
  • Unit 2 approx. 53 sq.m.
  • Total approx. 196 sq.m.

St Catherine’s Church will undertake reinstatement to the facility prior to the commencement of a new letting, or provide a financial contribution to the tenant, if it seeks to undertake works (to be approved by the Church) itself. The Church seeks an annual rent of £35,000 excluding business rates, utilities and normal operating & maintenance charges.
