The Duncans Building is an historic row of 16 units on High Street. The two units at the far left have been restored by Joe and Nicky Arts (according to the sign on the door of the building). Another two units at the other end of the row are being restored by another owner. The remaining units are owned by the Crown. According to this article in the Press there are developers interested in restoring the rest of the units.

In the space of a couple of weeks this new building (not yet completed) suddenly looked like an actual building and not like a construction site. I rather like the curves of it. Something a bit different.

The art deco Kensington House looks to have re-opened with hospitality businesses in the ground floor and I read a while back there would be a shared working space here as well. Nice to see a building restored.
