WIRRAL Growth Company has received planning approval for two new Grade-A office developments in Birkenhead, marking the first phase of its regeneration masterplan.
The announcement follows the recent approval of the formal site development plan for phase one of Birkenhead Town Centre’s masterplan, as well as the WiredScore Gold standard rating that the two buildings secured earlier this summer, which will see them placed among the best in the country in terms of broadband and telecom infrastructure.
Once complete, one of the two five-storey developments will be occupied by Wirral Council, while the second building will be available to let on the open market, helping to address the Liverpool City Region’s shortage in Grade-A space and creating opportunities for local businesses to grow and level-up their working environment.
The vision is to create a state-of-the-art workspace designed to WELL enabled, which means that they will be monitored in relation to their impact on human health and wellbeing through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and the mind. In doing so, spaces will be created that aim to improve the nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns and performance of their occupants, helping to contribute to a more positive work-life balance for modern-day workers.
Wirral Growth Company is a 50:50 joint venture partnership between Wirral Council and national urban regeneration specialist, Muse Developments.
