Completion nears for £3.5m Port of Liverpool refurb
The oldest of the city’s Three Graces, the grade two-listed Pier Head building will feature 25,000 sq ft of upgraded office space that “seamlessly blends” with its past.
Project manager Blossom Tree Group is leading the renovations of the Port of Liverpool building on behalf of owner real estate company Amtrak, to refurbish the existing vacant offices on the ground and first floor.
With work set to complete later this month, the £3.5m refurbishment will deliver modern office suites ranging from 488 sq ft to 10,000 sq ft, as well as breakout areas and meeting rooms.
The 160,000 sq ft Port of Liverpool building was constructed in the early 20th century as the headquarters for the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board.
Today, the landmark property is home to companies such as Rathbones, Forresters, Kuerne & Nagel, Ocean Network, DHL, and Ion Developments.
Alexis Georghiades, commercial managing director of Blossom Tree, said: “Our vision is to offer contemporary, sustainable office spaces that seamlessly blend with the building’s storied past.
“The enthusiasm and positive feedback we have received for the space thus far is incredibly encouraging.”
Worthington Owen has been appointed as the letting agent for the newly refurbished offices.
Mark Worthington, director at Worthington Owen, said: “The standard of the space that has been created is arguably the best space currently available in Liverpool and we are excited to be working with Blossom Tree to help find new occupiers for this fantastic, landmark building.”
