Social, simple and gorgeous
New Cooperage is a gorgeous Grade II Listed building that’s home to a range of flexible commercial spaces. Its clean Georgian lines overlook the open grassy spaces of The Green at the heart of award-winning Royal William Yard.
This elegantly simple 2-storey building dates from 1899 and was home to an army of coopers who constructed the many barrels used on the Royal Navy’s ships. Behind its grand, classical exterior are the results of a bold, yet sympathetic refurbishment, with a range of retail and restaurant spaces, plus all sorts of open plan offices served by an impressive foyer and reception area. Office spaces range in size from 6,155 sq ft to 11,820 sq ft, so there’s also massive flexibility.
The retail and restaurant spaces can be split into all sorts of sizes, with lots of opportunities for outdoor seating to spill out on to The Green. It’s a spot that’s seen by large numbers of visitors as soon as they walk through the development’s gates, so there are excellent opportunities for winning lots of passing trade.
Royal William Yard is easy for customers and staff to get to. There’s fast access to Plymouth city centre by foot, car or bus, the number 34 bus is half a minute’s walk away and the development even has its own ferry service.
Our short form leases help make moving to New Cooperage easy. They’re flexible and four pages long, so they cut down on the complexity, costs and commitment you’ll find in many other standard leases.
Royal William Yard is a place where thousands of people live and work. But with its beautiful buildings, stunning views, great restaurants, leisure facilities, bakery and galleries, it’s a destination too. There’s always something going on here.
You can try yoga or fitness classes on the lawn, take the stunning, award-winning steps down to the famous South West Coast Path, rent a paddleboard from Firestone Arches or take a dip in the tidal swimming pool at Firestone Bay. There’s also a regular programme of events all year round, including craft and food markets, seasonal events, pop-up arts performances such as the Invisible Circus’ street entertainers, wall dancers, The Barbican Theatre and Plymouth Art to name a few.
