Wirral Growth Company is building two office buildings in Birkenhead


CBRE is looking for tenants to fill two office buildings in the centre of Birkenhead which are due for completion in autumn this year.

Wirral Growth Company, a partnership between Wirral Council and Muse, started work on the two buildings in early 2022. Funded by Canada Life to the tune of £75m, the project comprises 147,767 sq ft of office space.

Wirral Council will occupy 65,447 sq ft of Building One, leaving part ground and the whole of the first floor available extending to 24,144 sq ft. Building Two, comprising 58,176 sq ft of office space is also available.

They will provide column-free floor plates from 12,500 to 19,400 sq ft and include air conditioning, metal tiled suspended ceiling and LED lighting. There will be floor to ceiling glazed elevations, showers and cycle hub facilities.

Neil Kirkham, senior director at CBRE in Liverpool, said: “The scheme will be the only new build office completed in the Liverpool city region this year and will provide the quality of product that is missing and in high demand in the market currently.

“These are exciting times for Birkenhead, following developments at Wirral Waters, together with the numerous projects Wirral Council is delivering within its Birkenhead 2040 vision.

“These include Dock Branch Park, Hind Street Urban Garden Village and further commercial district development such as a new ‘repositioned’ Birkenhead Market.


Two Birkenhaed office buildings are due for completion in the autumn


“Birkenhead has not seen a speculative office scheme in the town centre for 20 years. We are therefore fully anticipating these buildings are going to satisfy a lot of pent up demand for space in the market.”

Birkenhead is now stealing a march on Liverpool’s commercial district which has not seen any new grade A office space built in a decade. And LBN reported in March that there is little sign of that changing.

David Hughes, director or regeneration and place for Wirral Council, added: “This scheme represents an exciting opportunity for businesses looking for modern, sustainable, first-rate office space in Liverpool city region.

“These buildings will make a positive contribution to the regeneration of Birkenhead, which is currently undergoing significant transformation through a range of other projects.

“This development is a testament to our commitment to delivering high-quality assets that meet the needs of businesses and the wider community.”
