Tempest nears full occupancy

Capital & Centric’s 40,000 sq ft Tempest building on Tithebarn Street in Liverpool is now almost fully let, with Shedkm and Planit-IE taking up two of the three remaining office spaces.

Shedkm has signed a 10-year lease for a 3,100 sq ft space and Planit-IE has taken a five-year lease on 1,350 sq ft. The last remaining studio space is 1,750 sq ft.

The architecture and design firms will be joining Village Software, Broadway Partners and Gas Tag, which originally used Tempest’s co-working space before taking office units.

Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “Liverpool’s booming creative sector is a real testament to the growth of the city, and businesses want more options that really reflect their culture. They don’t want a cookie-cutter office development. They want a space that inspires creativity and brings people together, and that’s why we developed Tempest.

“Curating the right mix of tenants has been just as important for us as the fit out. We wanted to build a creative community so have turned people away that didn’t fit the vibe and ethos at Tempest. Our residents are attracted by how cool the spaces look but they stay because of the other people they meet.

“Right away we felt like both Shedkm and Planit got what we were doing at Tempest. These are super creative guys involved in some incredible projects in the city and we’re sure they’ll fit right in.”

Keep the vibe going as proposals for the vacant plots in Moorfields come forward. The Tempest is is one the medieval ‘Lanes’ which connected Liverpool’s original 7 streets: Tempest Hay, Hackins Hey and Leather Lane are all part of the fabric of the ancient town founded by King John. We need quirky new developments of the right scale to preserve these ‘Lanes’ and harness their potential in the digital age.

Good to see further take-up in the traditional CBD within innovative spaces! Well done

Certainly wouldn’t have happened without public intervention.

This pioneered the use of co working to create tenants, nice to see it works – especially if you stick to your guns on creating a cluster of like minded businesses. I’d like to see more of this in our city
