The first phase to demolish the Imperial Tobacco Bonded Warehouse buildings on Lenton’s Triumph Road commenced on Wednesday 14 June.
The old John Player warehouses, located on the University’s Jubilee campus, were built by John Player and Sons to house 20,000 tons of tobacco leaf. Operations at the buildings ceased in 2016 and the University acquired the site for redevelopment, meaning the warehouses will now be demolished.
The demolition project has been split into two phases:
The low-rise warehouses were cleared in 2016 and the main project is now well underway. The material from the warehouses will be recycled and eventually used in the construction of new roads and buildings.
Once cleared, the buildings will provide a development site that will enable the University of Nottingham to continue the progressive and sustainable development of our world-class campuses.

It’s great to see the development underway and read that the materials from the site will be used in the construction of new roads and buildings.

Disappointed to see the demolition of this iconic Nottingham landmark. Shame on the UoN!
