In December 2015, planning permission was granted (ref 15/04134/P) for use as a "tech hub" including office space and a cafe. This opened as a "tech hub" called TMRW (pronounced "Tomorrow") in May 2016, which consisted of desk/office coworking space and a cafe called Byte Cafe. These were both still there as of December 2019.
Accessibility to Byte Cafe: A huge step to get in. They did have a portable ramp, but there was no doorbell. Even so, the only normal-height seating in the cafe was up a couple of steps; all other seating is at high tables.
Accessibility to workspace: There was step-free access to the TMRW workspace, but it involved steep slopes and was very convoluted. From facing the front of the building, turn to your right, then take the next left (Robert Street; steep slope up). At the end of the street is a barrier in front of a car park photo; press the intercom button here to have the barrier raised. Go down the steep slope, turn left, and head for the ramp leading to the back entrance of the building photo. There's another intercom button here photo for access to the building. Once inside, take the lift to the first floor. There is an accessible toilet photo next to the workspace entrance.
