The Northern Echo building is currently for sale. Niven have worked with 2 different developers to produce feasibility designs to help access the potential redevelopment options and building value.
The Echo Building celebrated it’s 100 year anniversary last year. It has grown considerably over its lifetime with the 1st phase completed in September 1917. The opening ceremony was attended by the great and good of the area with plenty of speeches and a fine luncheon. A silver key was presented to the guest of honour, Arnold Rowntree, the Liberal MP for York who was chairman of the Echo’s board of directors and was watched by the paper’s 200 employees as he stepped through the corner door and declared the building open.
If things go according to plan, Niven hope to be involved in the process of rejuvenation the building ready for the next 100 years.
