The iconic Grade I (GI) listed Royal Liver Building in Liverpool is to be marketed for sale.
Acting on behalf of Royal London Mutual Insurance Society, CBRE has been instructed to sell the iconic Royal Liver Building in Liverpool.
This is the first time that the world-renowned Grade I Listed property has been offered for sale since its grand opening in 1911 as the headquarters of the Royal Liver Assurance Group. Today, the Royal Liver Building is the most recognisable landmark in the city of Liverpool and is home to the two fabled Liver Birds which watch over the city and the sea.
The Royal Liver Building is located at the Liverpool Pier Head and, along with the Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building, forms one of Liverpool’s Three Graces lining the city’s UNESCO protected waterfront.
The building has undergone extensive refurbishment over recent years, which has delivered a high-quality working environment providing modern office space whilst preserving the building’s stunning original architectural features.
The property, extends to over 330,000 sq ft of office and events space, is now occupied by a host of well-known companies including Princes Foods, ITV, HSBC, Mott MacDonald and Grant Thornton.
Executive Director at CBRE in Manchester, Colin Thomasson said ‘We are delighted and extremely proud to be instructed to seek a purchaser for this truly iconic symbol of Liverpool. The Royal Liver Building is known worldwide and we expect the sale to attract strong interest from investors in the UK and around the globe. Our clients have been great custodians of this building for over 100 years, and this sale presents an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a unique part of Liverpool’s heritage’.
