Liverpool Science Centre launches

Posted on by John Cronin

A private equity company specialising in commercial property has launched the first phase of the new Liverpool Science Centre.

LSC BuildingInvestors Gresham House plc are now seeking tenants for their speculative scheme located at the former Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) premises on the Southern Gateway site in Speke. The Liverpool Science Centre (pictured) offers specialist features for science-based companies that are looking for office floor space coupled with facilities for research and design projects.

The building offers in excess of 97,000 sq ft of Grade A floor space and includes offices, clean-rooms, laboratory suites and shower facilities. The specialist rooms are also available on a pay-as-you-go basis. The building is available to let on either a whole-building basis or as suites ranging in size from 800 sq ft up to 5,500 sq ft. A fully-serviced office option is available for start-up businesses. Office suites can be configured to have their own entrance and reception areas. The site also offers 24hour, manned security.

The former GSK Southern Gateway site was purchased by Gresham House in 2004 and in total there is 356,000 sq ft of floor space within the mixed-use scheme. Development work on the latest centre began in 2010. The site is very close to Liverpool John Lennon Airport and the Liverpool Science Park which also offers flexible Grade A office accommodation is nearby.

Mike Boyens of Gresham House subsidiary New Capital Developments said: “Liverpool Science Centre is a fantastic facility that has been developed to a particularly high standard, providing laboratory, clean room, or office accommodation for a science-based business or organisation looking for Grade A premises in a prime location.”
