Hythe, 25,000 sq ft designed by Glenn Howells Architects, is the first office development in Birkenhead in more than a decade.

Contractor GMI Construction has handed Hythe over to Wirral Waters developer Peel L&P.

Located within the Four Bridges neighbourhood of Wirral Waters, the £7.5m Hythe has a BREEAM-Excellent rating.

The development has been funded in part by a £3m grant from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. Other financial contributors include Peel L&P and the Merseyside Pension Fund.

The project was previously called No 1 Tower Road South and is part of the regeneration of the Four Bridges neighbourhood at Wirral Waters.

Wirral Council has also played a pivotal role to support Peel L&P’s team in delivering the project, emphasising the importance of collaborative working to ensure that the vision for Wirral Waters is delivered.

Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “The completion of the Hythe marks an important stage in the development of Wirral Waters. Not only does it offer some of the most advanced office space in the area, it is also one of the greenest and most sustainable buildings in the country.

“We invested £3m to help make it happen because we really believe in the potential for the Left Bank project to transform Birkenhead.”

Lettings are available for businesses wanting to relocate to Hythe. Business should contact lettings agents Matthews & Goodman and Avison Young for further details.

More positive news for the Birkenhead quaysides , with £3million coming from City Region grants, that`s about 40% of the cost, once again Peel heavily reliant on the public purse.
Birkenhead is improving before our eyes and the future looks bright.
