Prestigious Liverpool building welcomes new tenants following six-figure revamp

Yorkshire House

The iconic Yorkshire House in Liverpool has undergone a six-figure refurbishment following the acquisition of the property by Bolton-based property investors, Millfield Estates a year ago.

The investment into the building has seen a major upgrade into the common areas and vacant suites. The design-led renovation has enhanced the building’s high quality office space and has upgraded it to a Metronet enabled building delivering high-speed internet access.

The new look has attracted new tenants including Prime Site Developments, a  specialist in the construction of student accommodation, care facilities, and premium city centre residential accommodation, who moved into the fourth floor of the building during the refurbishment, occupying 1,583sq ft of space.

Bobbie Johnson, director of Prime Site Developments, said: “Due to the fast growing expansion of the company we have been on the hunt for a new office that would really complement our offer.

“The upgraded look and feel at Yorkshire House was exactly what we were looking for and it has given us a space to really create a new home. Having three residential development projects currently under construction in the city centre, means our new office location is exceptional.”

Enterprise cloud contact centre and workforce optimisation specialist Aspect Software has now taken over all of the seventh floor, which boasts over 2,31 sq ft.

CBRE and Worthington Owen acted for Millfield Estates while Aspect Software were represented by Cushman & Wakefield.

This month, personal injury specialists, UK Law Nationwide, also joins the Yorkshire House cohort, taking advantage of the newly renovated sixth floor suite, which boasts a new glass entrance façade and benefiting from new flooring and improved working space.

Electrical distributor Hitec Exports Limited, has relocated within the building to the 882sq ft unit on the ground floor to expand operations.

With the property’s other existing tenants including Cowgill Holloway, Moore Media and Graham & Woolnough Limited, the property is now fully let.

Paul Dobson, property director for Millfield Estates, said: “Our long term investment into the Liverpool office market has been thoroughly vindicated with these new lettings in Yorkshire House.

“To have secured new tenants ahead of completion of the refurbishment underlines the strength of the building and its location at the heart of the commercial district. Enormous credit for the design of the refurbishment must go to the team at USP Creative, who forged a brilliant fusion of modern finishes that still respected the historic features of the building.”
