Unlisted, the building has stood mostly vacant since the Covid pandemic struck.

The Station News shop, which occupied part of the building, closed its doors at the end of last month after being told by their landlord that it would need to vacate the premises.

The site is owned by SRP Inverness, which is behind plans for a new hotel on land immediately opposite the hall and next to the Spectrum Centre.

SRP successfully secured the demolition warrant for Rose Street Hall back in 2020.
