- Next phase starts as the 10,000 sq. ft fifth floor finishes.
- Flexi suites proving popular in post-COVID return to work.
Developer and property manager Downing is set to start the next phase of the landmark building revival for one of Liverpool’s most prominent business buildings.
The landmark No.1 Old Hall Street, opposite Moorfields train station, is continuing to undergo a major internal and external transformation programme. Work will now focus on the exterior of the building, which is due to begin week commencing Monday, September 6th 2021 along with the provision of further Grade A office space, in a combined investment of £3.5M.
Planning approval was secured in July and contracts have since been placed for the provision of new cladding and windows to all upper floors and elevations, along with new double height glazing to the ground and upper ground floors.
Following the recently agreed re-location of the Chamber of Commerce to alternative accommodation, the now vacated 4,200 ft² suite will be refurbished to Grade A standard, with direct access off reception and benefitting from the new double height, feature glazing.
Work is expected to complete in April 2022 with the building’s three ground floor shop tenants, Pret-A-Manger, Out to Lunch and JW Newsagents all remaining open throughout.
Previous phases have seen a full roof replacement, a power upgrade, the completion of a new building entrance and reception area, breakout areas and meeting spaces, as well as providing 10,100 sq. ft of Grade A space on the fifth floor and additional flexi-office suites.
