I agree that the whole site in which the InShops occupies needs refurbished or indeed a wholesale redevelopment.
It is possible that the site has been sold quietly in an off the market sale?
If this were to be the case, I could only hope that any new owner of the site redevelops it into a mixed use development. Boutique shops, bars, restaurants, apartments, hotel and offices. Perhaps introduce a new street linking to Pottingers Entry from Church Lane?
With the ever increasing footfall on Church Lane to Victoria Square and towards Skipper Street and the Cathedral Quarter, Church lane has the potential to become a street lined with buzzing bars and restaurants with al-fresco dining - an example of which is Muriels which is always busy. A handful more dining / drinking establishments could make that area a destination in itself.
The potential wholesale redevelopment of the In-shops site, could lead to this possibility.
Anyone else any thoughts of what they would like to see happen to the In-Shops site?
