18-storey tower, designed by Broadway Malyan, will attempt to win tenants from relocation of government offices
Irish developer 30 Pall Mall has submitted a planning application for a £50m 18-storey office building in Liverpool's business district designed by Broadway Malyan. The building will hold 225,000ft2 of grade A office space and will attempt to win tenants from the relocation of government offices to the regions. The development envisages two separate buildings with a covered internal courtyard and cafes, restaurants and shops on the ground floor.
Ashley Moore, managing director of 30 Pall Mall, said the application signified his belief that Liverpool could become one of the UK's premier business destinations. He said: “The city has some fantastic strengths as a business destination, but it is essential that it continues to grow its supply of top quality commercial office space if it is going to maintain its post-capital of culture renaissance in the longer term.”
Moore added that the development was the only one in Liverpool to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Justice, which is planning to relocate 2,500 civil service jobs outside of London.
The developers are aiming to achieve BREEAM Excellent energy efficiency rating.
