The RSA has ‘no plans’ to sell its Horsham headquarters after an application to convert its offices into more than 200 flats was submitted.
The insurance giant employs hundreds of people at St Mark’s Court in Chart Way, which is one of the town’s landmark buildings.
An application has been submitted to Horsham District Council by BMO Real Estate Partners, a property investor and property fund manager, for a change of use for the building to provide 174 one-bed studio flats and 29 two-bedroom apartments.
But an RSA spokesman explained that optimising the use of its large range of properties across the UK now and in the future was ‘just part of estate planning’.
They added: “The RSA Group has no plans to sell St Mark’s Court and is totally committed to the Horsham area. We are committed to our staff in Horsham which remains the home of MORE TH>N.
“Indeed we reaffirmed our commitment to our Horsham site at St Mark’s Court by consolidating our office space and undertaking recent refurbishments.”
