Knightsbridge Court, which is located between Rose Hill and West Bars, was bought by Nottingham-based firm ARC Vantage last year following a deal by Innes England.

Set within 1.1 acres, it has been granted planning permission for 30 apartments over three floors.

Chris Wright, associate director at Innes England, previously told the Derbyshire Times: “Knightsbridge Court has been empty for a number of years and had sadly become the target for vandalism and fallen into disrepair.

“This deal will see the building being brought back into use and bring employment opportunities for local people during the construction.

“The conversion will not only deliver much-needed housing to Chesterfield but also safeguard the future of this landmark building.”

Adam Cavell, director at ARC Vantage, described the project as ‘exciting’.
