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.”

When your city can boast this kind of architecture , Liverpool has some very fine buildings

By Anonymous

If only we had this type of architecture in Manchester .

By Morrisey

I prefer Sunlight House tbh

Come on Morrisey, Mcr does have some fine architecture, just as does Leeds, Belfast, Glasgow, Birmingham, what makes Liverpool different is that it has a waterfront on a working river, but it’s not the only city with fine buildings.

The fact Morrisey that you had to make it about Manchester when it should be a positive piece for once about Liverpool says a lot although I understand why you might want to lash out. It’s a fine old building , celebrate that and try to keep your inner monologue just that.

Great to see this as well as India Buildings and currently under refurb Martins Bank providing high spec office space in the city. Really feels like Liverpool is starting to mean business finally.

@Morrisey you can’t be serious… Manchester Town Hall, The Midland, Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, Lancaster House, John Rylands library, Barton Arcade plus many buildings along Deansgate and in Northern Quarter, list goes on and on. Manchester has some incredible architectural gems ( and Liverpool does too)

By Mike

Liverpool or Manchester regardless, just imagine we could build something with half the quality of this today would be something… Living in dreamland I know…

Liverpool has better old architecture. Manchester better contemporary architecture. Cracked it.

By Elephant

More listed buildings in Liverpool than any other city outside London including Birmingham

By Ward

And completely irrelevant to this story. 🙄

No point having listed buildings if they are abandoned eg Wellington Rooms, Lyceum, Welsh Presbyterian Church.

Amazing to see a nice considered refurb – in any city! Well done!
Re listed buildings being forgotten – please don’t forget the clock tower building on monument place Liverpool in the Fabric District – that’s going to ruin and that’s owned by Liverpool City Council.
