HARTLEPOOL MP Iain Wright will unveil a landmark building which is re-opening after a major refurbishment.
Titan House, in York Road, Hartlepool, has 49 flats above what used to be a small row of empty shops.
But since Housing Hartlepool, a partner in the Thirteen Group, took over the building, it has taken on a new look and a new role.
The shops have been replaced by offices providing a one-stop shop for customers of all the partners in the Thirteen Group, including Housing Hartlepool, to access their services.
Now, after many months of work, the new office will finally be formally unveiled by Labour MP MrWright this Friday.
Dave Pickard, group director of operations at Thirteen Group, said: “Titan House is a well-known building right at the entrance to the town.
“It had seen certainly better days, but we recognised the potential to develop it and are delighted now the first new Thirteen office is to be opened in Hartlepool, replacing the Greenbank office.
“There has been a lot of work on the building, and we are very pleased to have been able to breathe some new life into it. We look forward to welcoming customers to our office, and hope residents in the flats will enjoy the improvements to the building.”
