New letting confirmed at No. 4 St Paul’s Square

133

Acting on behalf of English Cities Fund (ECf), the Office Agency team at CBRE, Liverpool has secured a 10-year lease to Gas Tag for a 2,853 sq ft office suite on the sixth floor at No. 4 St Paul’s Square in Liverpool City Centre at £20 per sq ft.

No. 4 St Paul’s Square is an eight-storey, 107,134 sq ft, Grade A office building located in the prestigious St Paul’s Square, which is regarded as the most significant commercial, office-led development in Liverpool City Centre within the last decade and the focal point of Liverpool’s Commercial Business District.

No. 4 St Paul’s Square is the city centre’s first speculatively developed BREEAM ‘Excellent’ office building and the third and final phase of the 1.5 million sq ft office-led development centred around Pall Mall.

St Paul’s Square benefits from excellent transport links, with direct access to the M62, M57, and M53 motorways, which lead to the national motorway network. Just 10 minutes’ walk or drive from Liverpool Lime Street Station, the building also enjoys unrivalled rail links with mainline service connections to all major UK towns and cities.

Andrew Byrne, associate director for Office Agency, at CBRE Liverpool, said:

“Following the recent letting to MSB Solicitors, we are very pleased to have secured a further letting to The Rosethorne Group, which will join existing occupiers, Santander, Mercer, CBRE, GVA, Ziferblat and Search Recruitment. Of the remaining 45,000 sq ft available to lease at No. 4 St Paul’s Square, a 14,155 sq ft unit is currently under offer and we are in further discussions with other high profile occupiers on the remaining space.

“The continued interest in high quality accommodation is leaving occupiers with limited options in the city centre and this is set to continue in the short term.  As a consequence of this reduction in stock we have already seen upward pressure on headline rents and a significant reduction in rental inducements.”

Gas Tag has relocated from the Tempest Building on Tithebarn Street, Liverpool.

Stephen Ullathorne, director for Gas Tag, added:

“We are delighted to move to best in class offices right in the heart of Liverpool’s Commercial District.  It was this prominent location, coupled with the excellent working environment at St Paul’s, that attracted us to the property.”

CBRE is joint agent with GVA on the remaining accommodation within No. 4 St Pauls Square.
