Peel Land & Property has gained planning consent for a £7.5m office aimed at SMEs, designed by Glenn Howells Architects, at its Wirral Waters development.
No1 Tower Road will offer different types of office accommodation over three storeys, with the first floor targeted at small businesses including an incubator facility, while the upper two floors will offer six suites of grade A office space.
The building is intended to be in a similar style to the £10.5m Wirral Metropolitan College next door, which was also designed by Glenn Howells.
Peel has a Strategic Investment Fund bid under way to finance the development of the office.
Richard Mawdsley, development director at Peel L&P, said: “Our 30-year strategy for Wirral Waters focuses on enabling global companies to trade alongside businesses from the Wirral and Liverpool, creating more than 20,000 permanent new jobs.
“The new Tower Road workspace has been designed with Wirral’s small business community in mind. From solo entrepreneurs to SME’s, the development on Tower Road will offer a high tech co-working environment in the centre of an internationally recognisable destination where innovation, sustainability and industry thrive.”
Turley acted for Peel in the planning submission for the Tower Road building.
