Large Wirral letting comes to market

At 21,000 sq ft each, the ground and first floors of Birkenhead’s Cheshire Lines building are being marketed with Smith and Sons.

The rent has been set at £8 per sq ft.

Owned by a private landlord, the Canning Street venue is a former rail storage facility and was most recently occupied by Wirral Council, including the authority’s archives service, before a move to new offices.

Jason Wadeson, partner at Smith and Sons, said: “This is an important building that would make an ideal head office for an aspirational firm who are looking to make Wirral their home.

“The building commands a huge presence on a central thoroughfare. Currently, both floors are largely open plan with several ancillary rooms used for meeting and recreational space.

“There is huge scope to redesign and reconfigure, adapting the space to become truly fit for purpose.”

The building lies within the Wirral Waters regeneration area which is expected provide up to 13,500 homes and potentially create up to 20,000 jobs across the next 25 years.

Wadeson added: “Interest in this part of Birkenhead is intensifying as the Wirral Waters scheme finally gathers pace.

“We believe that the building transcends sectors and would be suitable for almost any business operating a large workforce.

“The previous tenants have now moved out and we have access to the building and are able to carry out viewings.”

The letting comes with 102 car park spaces, toilets, and canteen areas connected by lifts.

Other specification details include a mix of suspended and exposed ceilings, air handling systems, and raised access flooring.

Transport links include nearby Hamilton Square train station, the Mersey Tunnels, and M53 motorway.
