Here’s a small selection of what people have said about us.
  • Developer Capital & Centric has started work on a £3m speculative commercial development in South Liverpool.

    The Manchester firm, which has completed or is working on a number of Merseyside projects, will create 40,000 sq ft of office and warehouse accommodation, including laboratory, research and development space at Estuary Commerce Park in Speke.

    The four-acre site, which was purchased from the Homes and Communities Agency in December 2014. The accommodation, once complete, will be targeted towards small to medium-sized enterprises.

    Capital & Centric has appointed construction firm Seddon to build the development, which includes the creation of a new road access and the landscaping of surrounding areas.

    The European Regional Development Fund provided gap funding of £1.42m.

    Capital & Centric director, Adam Higgins, said: “It is fantastic to be onsite with another speculative scheme for the region, our fourth live construction site.

    “We’ve focused on energy efficiency, interesting design and high quality construction. We’re confident we will attract some exciting, fast-growing businesses to the development that will fit right in with the surrounding organisations.”

    Capital & Centric has already completed similar developments in Speke in recent years and is currently working on two other Liverpool schemes – the redevelopment of the former Littlewoods site off Edge Lane and an office project in Tithebarn Street in Liverpool city centre.

    Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson added: “Estuary Commerce Park has long been established as a great employment generator for South Liverpool and Capital & Centric’s involvement in this site has provided fantastic opportunities over the last five years.

    “Their success there has been enhanced by their willingness to develop speculatively so that potential occupiers can see and feel the space before making a decision. It’s great to see the next phase underway.”

  • AMBITIOUS plans for a new 'hip and creative city centre neighbourhood' between Piccaddilly Station and The Village have been approved by the City Council Executive.

    We're not looking to create another Northern Quarter, Spinningfields, Shoreditch or anywhere else here

    The new £150m scheme by Capital & Centric and Henry Boot Developments, titled 'Kampus', includes 500 new apartments, two new hotels, bars, restaurants, cafes and offices centred around the barricaded Little David Street - said to be 'one of the only untouched and original cobbled streets in Manchester'.

    Little David Street runs between the Grade II-listed derelict Minshull Mill and Minto & Turner nineteenth-century warehouses.

    The joint venture partnership acquired Manchester Metropolitan University's 250,000 sq ft Aytoun Street campus back in March 2014. The new development should comprise a total 450,000 sq ft.

    The MMU's former library building will be converted into offices, the '60s tower into apartments and a hotel, while the lecture hall will make way for a new public realm.

    Adam Higgins of Capital & Centric said: “The philosophy at Kampus is to deliver nothing but the best in architectural design. It’s by doing this that we can create a new destination, community and an entirely new offer for city centre living and trading. Our ethos is that we don’t do ordinary.”

    Adam Brady of Henry Boot said: “We're not looking to create another Northern Quarter, Spinningfields, Shoreditch or anywhere else here, Kampus will be a distinctive sub-district with its own individual vibe”.

    The plans will now be put out to public consultation.

  • Capital & Centric is under construction with 20,599 sq ft (1,914sq m) of office and warehouse accommodation, including laboratory, research and development space.

    The accommodation, known as Lightbox, located on Abbey Street in Birkenhead, is targeted towards small to medium sized enterprises within the Offshore Wind Sector. The 1.5 acre (0.6 hectare) site, which Capital & Centric purchased from Wirral Council in December 2014, will be a hub to support the offshore wind farm sector.

    Regional Grant Funding has supported the scheme with £900,000 of gap funding.

    Capital & Centric’s Michelle Rothwell commented: “We have had really good demand from the sector and are predicting the units to be fully let within the first six months. The site is located adjacent to the banks of the River Mersey where one of the UK’s largest windfarms has been given the green light and as such there is a real buzz around the scheme.”

    A special quirk to the ‘Lightbox’ design is the transparent roof panels which means that no internal lighting will be required during the day as it allows daylight to shine through creating huge savings for tenants, and then in the evening if lights are switched on the scheme lights up creating a tremendous visual effect.

    Sean Seery, Partner at Smith and Sons said: “This is fairly unique commercial development for Wirral. It has been designed in such a way to offer flexible floor space.

    “The location is excellent for those operating in this sector, and is only a few miles away from the vast Burbo Bank Extension, placing any new tenant at the heart of a rapidly developing industry here in Merseyside.”
