Developer Capital & Centric has released fresh images of its redevelopment of Liverpool’s former Littlewoods Building with the £50m project on track despite a fire at the site last month.
The developer has showcased images of the design-led workspaces for the building’s tenants, along with the central food and drink hall which sits between the building’s two wings.
Set to be home to anchor tenant Twickenham Studios, which is taking 85,000 sq ft, the building was engulfed by a fire in early September. The film studio has since reaffirmed its commitment to the project and Capital & Centric said the project will still complete in 2020.
Co-founder of Capital & Centric Tim Heatley said: “Our team was floored by the outpouring of love for our vision from the city and around the world.
“The building is pretty cavernous and has loads of potential – the fire doesn’t change any of that.
“We’re busy speaking to potential occupiers and planning what the space will look like inside, what finishes we’ll need and how the various spaces will work together. We’re making sure the inside is impressive and beautifully designed, befitting of what is an icon for Liverpool.
“The city has picked itself up from the Channel 4 shortlisting outcome. Truth is, it doesn’t need it. With the global demand for space and the sheer volume of productions coming to the UK, Channel 4 was just a nice-to-have.”
In total, the £50m development will include 300,000 sq ft of space set aside for the film industry.
