Bond Turner nearly doubles Liverpool office space

The law firm has taken a second suite at Downing’s No1 Old Hall Street, growing its presence from 5,100 sq ft in the building to 9,300 sq ft.

Bond Turner has signed a 10-year lease for an additional 4,200 sq ft of Grade A space on the upper ground floor of the Liverpool office block, which sits opposite Moorfields train station.

Downing is conducting a £6m refurbishment project for the 67,000 sq ft building. Works completed thus far include a new entrance and reception area as well as the building of additional breakout areas and meeting spaces.

Less glamorous endeavours included installing an insulated roof replacement and upgrading the building’s power supply.

Downing hopes to add more tenant amenities and wellbeing areas later this year to No1 Old Hall Street.

John Clegg, head of property management at Downing, described his ambitions for the building. “No1 Old Street has been a prominent office building within Liverpool’s thriving professional services marketplace over several decades,” Clegg said.

“However, when the Downing team began work to upgrade No1, we envisioned welcoming a melting pot of firms of all sizes and sectors, bringing a new vitality to the heart of the City’s Business District.”

Clegg also welcomed the expansion of Bond Turner at No1 Old Street.

“Bond Turner is playing a key role in shaping this new culture and we look forward to them enjoying their extended reach within the building, along with new, like-minded occupiers, joining us in our few remaining suites,” he said.

Dawn O’Brien, director at Bond Turner, said: “Having been based at No1 Old Hall Street since 2020, it has facilitated Bond Turner to progress through the next stage of our growth plan. It has helped us to attract a team of exceptional litigators and increase capacity to deliver fantastic results for our clients.

“The way in which we work, like so many businesses, has changed a lot since we first moved to No1 Old Hall Street, however, the important role of the office is still clear to our team,” she continued.

“Having undergone refurbishment work throughout the building, it reinforces the fact it is the perfect home for our people.

“We believe that the working environment is a pivotal part of business success and it is important that our people are working in a space that is an enjoyable place to be.”

Current tenants at No1 Old Hall Street include Dendara, Rasul & Howell, Gibbons Law, Kenyon McAteer Solicitors and, of course, Bond Turner, as tenants. There are still spaces available for leasing, including 10,000 sq ft on the fifth floor.

Well done to Downing – they’ve done a nice job there. Good to see a healthy roster of new tenants as a result. Bang opposite Moorfields underground will be a major plus, I’d imagine.

Yeah this building looks the part now, and with a Pret a Manger at street level looks very business-like.
