41 High Street, Hull, HU1 1PS
The borrowers purchased this historic building in the heart of Hull city centre in June 2020, and the phase 1 raise of the project was done through Sourced Capital for the total amount of £647,000. The project plan consisted of converting this beautiful building into offices along with 8 self-contained apartments.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continued throughout 2020, the developer decided to convert the offices into apartments. It was deemed that office space was no longer in such demand with businesses allowing their employees to work from home for the foreseeable, and when this change to the project was considered it showed that adding four new apartments instead of the office space, would generate a higher gross development value (GDV).
The area has seen an incline in housing prices over the last 5 years, totalling an average capital growth of 17%, (source propertydata.co.uk).

To complete phase 2, the borrower is raising £251,000 for the build of the four apartments. The planned exit is to sell the apartments within a 9-month period (which will also be the end of phase 1 works), generating an estimated profit margin of 48% on the sale of the apartments.
