Property and construction consultancy Gleeds has doubled the size of its Liverpool city centre base with a new office deal.
The growing firm will relocate from its current Edmund Street premises to a new 3,590 sq ft Grade A space to accommodate a 25% rise in staff numbers in the last year.
Gleeds is the first occupant to sign up to the commercial district’s 4 St Paul’s Square since the building was acquired by Aberdeen Asset Management in an £18.7 million deal earlier this year.
Gleeds’ director for Liverpool, Paul Boyle, says: “This is a really exciting time for our business following our 10-year anniversary in the city in 2016.
“Not only do we see this as a great investment for the city, we’re also immensely excited about the potential it gives our people.
“We are investing heavily in expanding our Liverpool business and plan to have doubled the size of our team in the next couple of years. This will further boost our ability to support project delivery within the city region and right across the North West.”
Andrew Owen of Worthington Owen, which is joint agent for 4 St Paul’s alongside CBRE, adds: “Gleeds is a dynamic and ambitious business and will significantly bolster an already impressive portfolio of tenants at 4 St Paul’s Square.
“We’re seeing lots of interest in the building from a range of potential occupiers and are confident that there will be more lettings to announce in the weeks and months to come.”
