Skyline starts Southport business hub 

Enterprise Arcade will comprise 10,000 sq ft of workspace within the former Crown Buildings on Eastbank Street. 

Liverpool-based Skyline Property Solutions is on site leading on the interior refurbishment and refit of the building into space for digital and creative start-ups and scale-ups. 

Tenants are expected to move into the hub, designed by K2 Architects, by the end of the year. 

North West digital expert Jon Corner, who helped drive technology sector businesses to Media City in Salford, will also be joining the Enterprise Arcade project team.  

Cllr Christine Howard, Sefton Council’s cabinet member for regeneration and skills, said: “The new, repurposed workspace will join Southport’s regenerated and already successful market in demonstrating how new life can be brought back to these fantastic buildings, encouraging more investment and helping secure a positive future for the town.  

“Our Enterprise Arcade will be the ideal location for a whole host of start-up and growing businesses and individuals, whether they be in the early incubator stages of developing their brand or simply in need of flexibility and an agile approach to their working practices.” 

Enterprise Arcade is one of Sefton Council’s Southport Town Deal projects. Other projects include the creation of a £33m Marine Lakes Events Centre and the £2.5m Les Transformations de Southport scheme, which will improve the town’s public space and travel routes.

What about the pier, and listed building that are falling to the ground.

By Julie Atkinson

Another solid initiative from Sefton Council, but they should have let the private sector name the place – ‘Enterprise Arcade’ just reeks of public sectorism, and is the very antithesis of the occupiers they hope to attract.
