Property management business The Momentum Group will manage two Grade II-listed office buildings in Liverpool city centre. Tony McDonough reports
Liverpool property management business, The Momentum Group, has secured instructions on two Grade II-listed buildings in the city centre.
It will provide property management services and facilities management for Temple Square on behalf of Glenbrook Investments and Princes Building on behalf of a private client. Both buildings are in Dale Street.
Chris Bliss co-founder and director at The Momentum Group, said: “We are delighted that we are able to add both Temple Square and The Princes Building to our growing property management portfolio. Our services are geared to providing the very best experience for occupiers whilst managing future return on investment for the client.
“The continued investment from investors into the city region and our continued expansion and growth ensures job creation, security and economic impact in the Liverpool city region.:
Guy Butler, co-founder at Glenbrook, added: “We required a property management company which would deliver a high level, bespoke service. The Momentum Group was our preferred choice, and we look forward to working with the team to help us exceed our occupiers’ expectations whilst also protecting and further enhancing our investment.”
The Momentum Group offers property management, facilities management and retail delivery services to its clients in both the retail and office property sectors. In an interview with LBN in March, co-founder and director Chris Renshaw said “reports about the death of the office are a little premature”.
He was talking in respect of the challenges faced by commercial landlords as the UK emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic. Homes working has now become much more common leading some to predict the demise of the city centre office.
However, Chris said: “We’ve been talking to clients and in short… the office is seen as a place to build relationships as well as to get work done. We don’t think there will be a big recovery in the office market in 2021 because many people are still nervous and unsure about how it will work.
“But while there has been talk of occupiers needing less office space if more people continue to work from home, there is also a scenario where organisations may need more space to accommodate more social distancing.”
