Coronation Street's former offices in Manchester is to be turned into a residential and commercial quarter after it was sold for £26m, reports the BBC.
The building in Quay Street has been bought by developers Allied London and Manchester City Council.
They intend to submit planning applications after the move (although there was confirmation earlier this year that Ikea will take over the site.)
As for the current Coronation Street set, its future remains uncertain. An application made by an anonymous individual, asking
English Heritage to give the Coronation Street set listed status to
secure its future, was refused.
