Ealing Borough Council has instructed HRH Retail to market the former Acton Library in west London for a range of commercial uses, including retail and leisure.

The former library is a striking Grade II listed building in a prominent location in Acton High Street. Mostly arranged over two floors, the property totals around 8,500 sq ft of modern space behind a listed façade.

Located on the junction of High Street and Winchester Street, it sits opposite the former Acton Town Hall and close to Acton Central Station, from where Crossrail services will run next year.

Tim Hance of HRH Retail says the attractive interior of Acton Library could accommodate a range of different uses (subject to planning) including retail, restaurants, cafés, leisure such as a gym or cinema and community facilities.

He adds: “This is a rare opportunity to take space in one of west London’s trophy buildings in an area that is experiencing a high level of development activity. We have already attracted a lot of interest from across the spectrum and believe the building’s exceptional location and layout would suit many different uses, especially community-focused occupiers.”

A new lease of the whole building is available for a term and rent to be agreed by negotiation. Consideration will also be given to letting the ground and upper floors separately.
