The former Ely News and Cambridge News offices in Market Place have been sold by property consultants Robinson Layer to a local property investor, close to the asking price of £285,000.

Mark Robinson, partner at Robinson Layer, said: “This is a prominent property with ground floor retail premises of about 370 sq ft and offices over of some 400 sq ft.

“It had a long history as the location for the Ely News, but it was a complex deal to finalise after two abortive sales.

“Being a selling agent does demand perseverance with a site like this.”

Meanwhile, the former base of Melrose Press who went into liquidation earlier this year is ready be let on a new lease with flexible terms to be agreed.

The building comprises of ground floor and first floor cellular and open plan offices and a warehouse.

Tenants have shared use of the landlord’s staff canteen, toilets and there is ample parking.
