To be developed into a new purpose built care scheme for senior living, the interior will feature 70 ensuite bedrooms and 7 assisted living apartments, several communal facilities such as lounge, hairdressers and a gym, with associated parking and gardens. The property will have a canalside frontage and each floor will have its own external terrace on the northern corner of the building, taking advantage of the views over the canal to the town centre beyond.
The site is situated at the end of Eleanor Street, backing onto the Leeds Liverpool Canal on the fringe of Blackburn town centre. All the town centre amenities are within walking distance. Eleanor Street is situated just off the A6078, which effectively forms a ring road around the town centre. Junctions 4, 5 and 6 of the M65 are all within 3 miles of the site.
