A ‘landmark’ building in Clevedon could soon be revamped into retail space and accommodation.

The Triangle Club was bought by 3SIXTY Real Estate for £225,000, after failing to sell at auction, in a bid to transform it from a tired, old social club into a modern, ‘attractive’ café and living space.

A planning application has been submitted which, if approved by North Somerset Council, would see 3SIXTY carry out a minor face-lift of the building and turn the downstairs area into a café space.

Four flats on the top floor would go on the market for about £160,000.

Director Adam Booth said: “Before purchasing the Triangle Club, we didn’t appreciate how much of a landmark building it was in the town centre. It was once the heart of Clevedon’s town centre.

“We want to be sympathetic to the structure but it is not fit for purpose at the moment.

“We have done some minor work already to stop water and wind damage – we got to it just 
in time.

“We want to breath a new lease of life into it and appreciate what a landmark building it was in the town centre.

“We just hope the planners share our vision and commitment.”

Clevedon Business Improvement District (BID) approached the developer and the pair have been working in partnership to get the best out of the building.

BID chairman Julie Bisacre said: “What they have proposed is going to make it look amazing and also bring affordable housing into the town. It also brings with it good quality retail space on the ground floor.

“The location is central to the BID area and that will only help in its regeneration.

“We have also been working in partnership with them to create a pocket park in The Triangle.

“If approved, the changes will make a real difference in the town, bringing people through the centre.”

The social club still owns 3 The Triangle, which has been closed for a year, and is working with the developers to get its own entrance so it may reopen.

3SIXTY once purchased and received planning permission to transform Campbell’s Landing into luxury flats.

However after the downturn in the market, it sold on the site.
