The School Yard is an exciting multi-let leisure investment with a high calibre of well established occupiers. The building benefits from an extensive frontage on the busy High Street, and is an important part of Harborne’s strong retail and leisure offer. At the time the purchase was secured, a new letting to Holy Moli Macaroni was also completed, who will take possession of the former Prezzo restaurant and establish itself within Harborne’s vibrant leisure scene very soon.
