Capital & Centric has commissioned a 21m-tall mural on the side of its Tempest office building in Liverpool, which the developer said is one of the biggest pieces of street art in the North of England.
The original artwork has been created by the Nomad Clan. It took the all-female street art group two weeks to complete the mural, which covers the side of the office.
The artwork features a number of themes, and symbols which reference various aspects of Liverpool’s history and includes images of bees to represent the beehive of 180,000 bees which Capital & Centric has installed on Tempest’s roof.
Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “We spent the past year renovating this derelict building in Liverpool to become a focus for innovative and creative new business; the artwork is the finishing touch by using the building as a canvas for everyone to appreciate.”
The 40,000 sq ft Tempest building in Liverpool’s commercial district was acquired by Capital & Centric from Derwent Lodge Properties in April 2013 after being left derelict for a number of years. The office recently underwent a £5m refurbishment. Tenants include business incubator Launch22 and law firm Hillyer McKeown.
