AMBITIOUS £3M PLANS to transform a vacant Enniskillen building into a three-floor nightclub complex are still in the pipeline, according to the man behind the project.
Work on the much-mooted nightclub project to be built around the site of the vacant Cafe Cellini on East Bridge Street could begin by spring next year.
An earlier plan was revealed back in 2011, but has yet to materialise. New plans have been drawn up and subject to planning permission will see extensions and development work to the left of the existing Cafe Cellini building to encompass three floors: Two club areas and a wine bar.
The old cafe building will remain as a day-time coffee shop.
The project could see between 30 and 40 jobs created. Architect plans for the building show a futuristic, glass-fronted design. The ground floor includes and outdoor ‘veranda’ area.
Leslie Wilkin, who is behind the project, told the Fermanagh Herald: “There’ll be three floors, the club in the basement, the club on the ground floor and a wine bar on the third floor. You’re looking towards bringing outsiders in. There’s not so much in the town to attract outsiders in and we’d hope people will come in from outside of the county. If you’re heading away for the weekend you look for the shops and restaurants but you also look for the nightlife as well.”
Mr Wilkin said that he hopes work could start on the project by spring of next year and expects work to be completed within 12 months.
