The site is 0.37 hectares (0.9 acres), with the existing property providing a total of 4,750 sq m (51,129 sq ft) of accommodation spread over three floors, plus a small basement of 105.5 sq m (1,135.6 sq ft). To the rear there is a parking and loading area for the property and a small parcel in the north west corner that had previously been utilised for a local car
sales business. The property is currently let to a Charity on a flexible short term basis.

To the north the site borders Chatham Waterfront development which is a private scheme of 176 residential 1 and 2 bedroom apartments being delivered by Medway Development Company. To the East is Mountbatten House, a 12 storey office building that
forms part of the Pentagon Centre, that has recently achieved planning for the conversion of the existing, plus an extension, to provide a total on 164 apartments. There is a significant amount of investment being made by Medway Council in to this area of Chatham and this site provides the next logical extension to this regeneration.
