Workspace, culture and community at the heart of the city’s most creative neighbourhood.
Situated in the Ropewalks area of Liverpool, known for its vibrant cultural scene, our vision was to create a lifestyle destination combining a modern workplace environment with complementary leisure uses.
Our full remodel was completed in 2022, sensitively restoring the part Grade II listed property across two adjoining buildings. The exceptional refurbishment attracted interest from major technology companies, and is now let in its entirety on a 11.5 year lease to Sony-owned video game developer Firesprite.
The letting marks one of the most significant commercial lettings deals in the Liverpool market since 2019.
