Downing relocates in Liverpool after office sale
Videogame developer Ripstone has bought the property firm’s old office on Myrtle Street, prompting the move to a larger site within its portfolio after 18 years.
Downing has relocated into a 9,700 sq ft on the fifth and sixth floors of the 67,000 sq ft No1 Old Hall Street, a building it owns.
The office, which has recently been refurbished, is 50% larger than its Myrtle Street site, according to Downing.
Sally O’Brien, joint chief executive at Downing, said: “No.1 Old Hall Street’s new look and ambition matches our own, making it the perfect home to support Downing’s future growth.
“We have a strong pipeline for 2024 and beyond and are excited to continue developing it. Having delivered the refurbishment works and seen the new, exciting business professionals it has attracted, we are excited to move in and become a part of the community.”
Downing’s decision to relocating to No1 Old Hall Street leaves one 7,000 sq ft office still available on the first floor that is about to be refurbished to allow up to four new Grade A suites, ranging from 700 sq ft to 3,500 sq ft.
Plans to improve the building’s amenity spaces are also being worked up.
Other tenants at No1 Old Hall Street include Bond Turner, Liverpool Civil Law, Rasul & Howell, Pret-a-Manger, Out to Lunch, Kenyon McAteer Solicitors, Unicourse, Chroda, and Dallas and Richardson.
Worthington Owen advised Downing on the sale of its Myrtle Street office.
