Property giant Peel has completed what is describes as a “luxurious” makeover for its No 8 Princes Dock office building.
Overlooking the city’s cruise liner terminal, No 8 is part of the £5bn Liverpool Waters development and is home to a number of blue-chip tenants including Coutts & Co, PWC and KPMG.
Also involved in the refit of the five-storey, 55,000 sq ft property was Chapman Taylor Architects, furniture consultancy company Form and fit-out contractor Jennor.
Offices in the building range in size from 2,316 sq ft to 9,432 sqft and all benefit from air conditioning, a 24-hour security and building manager service, on-site car parking and two panoramic passenger lifts which look out over the river.
As people enter No 8, they will be greeted by a new bespoke high gloss reception desk, with copper pendant lighting to complement the double height space.
The seating area has been reconfigured to provide guests with room to take in the impressive views and a new back-lit tenant directory will guide people to the right floor.
Customised glass display cabinets will house model shipping vessels in a nod to Liverpool’s world famous maritime heritage.
Liza Marco, asset manager at Liverpool Waters said: “This was already a high-spec building but these additional features give the space a unique and luxurious finish to provide a well-designed environment for the current occupiers and their visitors.
“Liverpool Waters is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after destinations in the country, not just for the business community but for leisure and residential customers too.”
