More than 280 business people explored Liverpool’s new-look Edward Pavilion last week as a special launch event took place.
Office space for occupants of all sizes was unveiled at the Grade I-listed building, situated within the city’s landmark Royal Albert Dock.
Celebrations took place from the afternoon into the late hours to celebrate the arrival of the state-of-the-art workspaces, which are a result of Castleforge Partners’ multi-million pound transformation of the property.
LFC Catering served an exclusive long table fine dining lunch (pictured) to more than 40 VIP guests in the building’s 25,000 sq ft top floor unit, which is currently under offer.
The lavish three-course meal was later followed by an evening of celebrations, as Edward Pavilion’s doors were opened to companies and individuals looking for a new place to start or move their business.
Potential occupiers, alongside bloggers and corporate guests, were welcomed with Champagne and given the opportunity to look around the building and its iconic waterfront setting in the sunshine.
DJs, gin bars, fun photo booths and jukeboxes made it a summer party to remember, and guests left the event with Liverpool-themed goodies including illustrated cans of beer and tote bags.
Whilst fizz and canapes were consumed, staff from Castleforge Partners and the team from Clockwise, the first occupier at Edward Pavilion, showed guests around the office building which provides space totalling 70,000 sq ft.
Serviced office provider Clockwise will operate on two floors, offering contemporary private offices and shared workspace with flexible membership plans.
Rachael Pittaway from Castleforge Partners says: “Since acquiring Edward Pavilion in December 2017, we have stopped at nothing to ensure the building becomes the latest destination in Liverpool for businesses to operate from.
“There is a real demand in Liverpool at the moment for grade A office space and so we’re delighted to be able to meet this need and offer a unique work place in the city.
“We are overwhelmed with the interest we have received so far and with 25,000 sq ft currently under offer at the site, only 8,000 sq ft of traditional office space remains available at this landmark location.
“With Clockwise on board we can also continue to offer serviced space for businesses with workforces of two to 20 people.”
Kerri McKenna from Clockwise adds: “Our successful launch event has prompted some very promising interest moving forward, and we have already had enquiries from companies within the professional services sector and the creative and digital industries.”
Worthington Owen is the appointed agent for the development.
