Gower Street Estates has appointed a new firm to carry out day-to-day management of the landmark Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.
The move aims to help enhance the waterfront destination’s visitor and occupier experience as it approaches its 175th anniversary celebrations in 2021.
CBRE will provide property management services at the historic site, which comprises the country’s largest collection of Grade I-listed buildings.
The dock, situated within Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heriatge site, is currently home to offices, retail units and a number of prominent leisure attractions including Tate Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime Museum, International Slavery Museum and the Beatles Story.
Andrew Willoughby deals with UK asset services at CBRE, which will manage the dock on behalf of the freeholder’s interest held by Gower Street Estates. He says: “Royal Albert Dock Liverpool is one of the UK’s most significant leisure attractions and we are delighted to have been appointed to bring our experience and expertise to manage such a prestigious site.
“We look forward to working with Gower Street Estates to ensure the site continues to create a vibrant and safe environment within this attractive historic realm.”
Sue Grindrod, chief executive at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, adds: “There has never been a better time to join us here at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool as we enter an exciting new era in its 172-year history, counting up to 2021 when we celebrate the dock’s 175th anniversary.
“As we build up to this milestone with new developments and investments, including the new Welcome Pavilion, which is set to open in 2019, and with footfall remaining very strong, the scene is set for a positive economic outlook for the dock.
“CBRE brings placemaking experience to support our focus in developing the visitor and occupier experience, and we welcome them to the dock family.”
