The site of the former Tyrone County Hospital has been brought to the market by leading property agents, Lisney.
The prominent 19.79 acre site is located just one mile from Omagh Town Centre, with its size presenting a very unique opportunity.
A former hospital for over 100 years, this huge site comprises a large number of existing buildings, extending to c.150,000 sq. ft., to include the main hospital block, laboratory, outpatient department and administration buildings. There are also numerous residential accommodation buildings, a tennis court and ten car parks providing 275 spaces.
Andrew Gawley, Director at Lisney said:
“Sites such as this are in demand due to the location, size and redevelopment possibilities, and as such, we anticipate strong levels of interest in this opportunity.
“The vast scale of this site lends itself to various uses including a hotel, retail, office, leisure or residential – all subject to Planning Permission.”
The former Hospital is surrounded by various residential dwellings, benefits from good access by public transport links and is in close proximity to all local amenities, schools and healthcare facilities.
The site is zoned as ‘White Land’ as per Omagh Area Plan 1987-2002 and development is therefore subject to all necessary consents with interested parties also advised to make enquiries into the planning potential of the site.
Irwin Potts, Assistant Director of Strategic Capital Development within the Western Health and Social Care Trust, said:
“This site is located in a highly sought-after area making it an attractive proposition for various parties such as investors and developers.
“A site of this size provides limitless potential for a redevelopment project and we look forward to seeing what is in store for the future of this local landmark.”
