Developer Capital & Centric has unveiled its latest Liverpool office development to commercial property agents – the Bunker building, close to Edge Lane.
The £4m scheme is next to the former art deco headquarters of pools and catalogue giant, Littlewoods, which Capital & Centric is also developing, and has benefited from the support of th European Regional Development Fund.
The Bunker, a speculative scheme, will offer 22,000 sq ft of office space on two floors. The building was formerly used by Littlewoods to store its catalogues.
Two prospective tenants are being lined up to take space while the Manchester developer is reporting “strong interest” in the remaining space.
Capital & Centric co-founder, Tim Heatley, said: “The level of excitement created by this project is ace.
“We have a creative approach to development and it’s fantastic to see what seemed a slightly ‘off the wall’ design come to life.
“There’s been a huge amount of interest shown not just from office agents and occupiers but also the architectural and property development community keen to see how we’ve transformed a concrete box without windows into a light, airy, funky and energy efficient space!
“We’re thrilled by people’s reaction to our design approach.”
Commercial agents were treated to entertainment at the launch. This included a performance by Ryan Doyle, the founding athlete of the World Free-running and Parkour Federation, and there was also a nod to the history of its former occupier, Littlewoods with a “Spot the Ball” competition featuring Luis Suàrez and Mikel Arteta.
Capital & Centric is creating a similar development for small businesses in Birkenhead.
