New retail opportunities after £2.9m rebuild of former Lincoln Gadsby’s

This story is over

New retail units will go up for sale at the end of the month after the completion of the £2.9 million Rose House rebuild in Lincoln city centre.

The original building on the corner of High Street and Tentercroft Street, which housed craft shop Gadsby’s and recently relocated Bridge McFarland, was demolished as part of the construction of the new East West Link road.

A set-back version of the building was reconstructed and named after the building’s former musical history. Rose House gets its name from the former Rose Musical Warehouse – founded by William Rose in the 1860s.

Rose Music Warehouse was founded in the 1860s.

Contractors are now making the finishing touches to the four retail spaces which are expected to be completed at the end of January. They will then be put up sale by Lincolnshire County Council.
