The Oven is the first in a group of disused buildings on Dumfries High Street which Midsteeple Quarter have identified as a site for their bold initiative which will see local people developing their own High Street as a contemporary living, working, socializing, learning and enterprising hub.
The plans are to develop the site into seven new flats which will be available to rent. The street level space will be used as an enterprise space for start-up businesses and social enterprise, as well as continuing the use of the space for charities and third sector organisations. Until the renovations can begin, the ground floor space is being used as a meeting and makers space which has the flexibility to be used for events, exhibitions, music events and much more.
