Major Works are underway at the Royal Liver Building

Work is well underway to deliver the next phase of development at The Royal Liver Building which will combine high quality office space alongside amenities, health and wellbeing activities.

Following planning approval in 2018, contractors are now on site and the scheme is on track to be completed by November 2019.

Developed and managed by real estate consultancy practice CBRE, Liverpool’s most prestigious address will house a wide variety of office space in addition to social and community offerings all under one roof, located on the much-desired waterfront setting.

c. 43,000 sq ft of Grade A office space will be delivered over the ground, mezzanine and 1st floors, with accommodation on the 1st floor available by October 2019.  A new restaurant, coffee shop, bar, gym and cycle facilities will also form part of the new offering providing tenants with the opportunity to take advantage of the health and well-being activities available in the building.

This phase of works includes the creation of an open plan, mixed use concourse with mezzanine and gallery spaces which opens up the entire ground floor area.  A combination of small and large office suites from c.500 sq ft to c. 43,000 sq ft will be offered across three floors which have been designed to accommodate a wide range of companies from micro businesses to SME’s.

2019 is set to continue to be a busy year for the iconic Royal Liver Building with renovation work set to be completed by November 2019.  Planning consent was obtained earlier this year for a restaurant and café/bar with CBRE leisure agents currently seeking suitable operators for the space. In addition to this the visitor attraction – Royal Liver Building 360 – recently opened up the building for the first time in its 108-year history offering the public the chance to explore the world-famous location including a new visitor centre and a world-class audio visual experience within the Clock Tower.

Neil Kirkham, Director, CBRE’s Office Agency team in Liverpool said:“This really is a pivotal moment in the history of The Royal Liver Building. The work that has now commenced on site, really will reposition the offer of the building and experience to both occupiers and visitors alike. Opening up the building and creating new reception areas will provide a real sense of arrival in the building. In addition to this the new amenities on offer including coffee shops/bar, restaurant, break out areas, touchdown work zones and more formal meeting rooms will really provide tenants with a complete 360 office experience.’

Andy Byrne, Associate Director, CBRE’s Office Agency team in Liverpool said:“A building in a prime location is no longer sufficient when considering the needs of a modern business. The health and wellbeing of employees is now a huge priority for employers when looking at office space and the new offering at The Royal Liver Building will really tick all the boxes by offering quality, flexible office space as well as leisure spaces and health and wellbeing activities. The repositioning of The Royal Liver Building has been focused around providing our tenants with a first class offering which increases productivity, inspires collaboration and encourages occupiers to see their work place as more than just office space.”
