Grade II-listed office building in the city’s central business district now has just 8,000 sq ft of space remaining following its latest letting to law firm Kirwans. Tony McDonough reports.
A Liverpool city centre office building dating back to the 1800s is now 60% full following a significant refurbishment.
Workspace design consultancy 360Degrees has completed a fit-out for the Grade II-listed One Temple Square, which fronts on to Dale Street.
Owned by MCR Property Group, the building now has a modern interior including new carpets, open-plan suites, a redesigned reception area and retained features including timber staircases.
Temple Square itself has also received investment to refresh its landscaping, offering an open air breakout space for tenants and public alike.
Recent lettings include law firm Kirwans, which took 1,971 sq ft on a five-year lease.
In February 2016 another law firm, Canter Levin & Berg, signed a new 10-year lease on its 7,800 sq ft space across two floors.
With just over 8,000 sq ft remaining, joint agent for the building Hitchcock Wright & Partners (HWP), says the location is ideal for companies seeking high quality office or retail premises.
Sean Collins-Jones of HWP said: “The latest letting to Kirwans confirms the ongoing occupier demand at One Temple Square and the success of its refurbishment.
“The refurbishment has been well received by both existing and prospective tenants so we’re expecting high demand for the remaining sq ft.”
Worthington Owen are joint leasing agents with HWP.
