An 18th century old factory in Leicester has opened its doors for the first time today after a £7.1m restoration.
Friars Mill includes the former Donisthorpe factory, which was badly damaged by a fire in July 2012. The site had stood empty since 2005.
The site has now been handed over to the East Midlands Chamber, who are looking for businesses to base themselves there.
City Mayor Peter Soulsby said:
The £7.1million redevelopment of Friars Mill was brought back to life by Leicester City Council.
It was part-funded by an award of up to £3.9m from the European Regional Development Fund.
It provides 25,000sqft of modern, managed workspace, with units ranging from 600sqft to 1,950sqft, along with meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a reception area.
Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said:
