Liverpool Melbourne Buildings offers unique office space


A historic building in Liverpool dating back to 1854 has come on to the market.

Melbourne Buildings in Liverpool city centre is offering 2,716 sq ft of office space to let.

The Grade II listed building on North John Street, in part dating back to 1854, has undergone cosmetic refurbishment to restore the original features whilst offering office space suitable for the modern occupier. 

The building provides nearly 3,000 sq ft of high quality office space across three upper floors. The ground floor of the property is occupied by a restaurant.

Hitchcock Wright & Partners is marketing the property on behalf of Derwent Lodge Estates.

It was built as Melbourne House in 1854 by Sir James A. Picton, an architect who was responsible for many important buildings in Liverpool. Notable work includes the Hargreaves Building on Chapel Street and the Queen Insurance Buildings on Dale Street.

In the 1900’s the building housed the Solicitors Law Stationery Society, a company which supplied office products to the legal profession. As well as the Liverpool office, the company had offices in London, Birmingham and Glasgow.

A rooftop extension to the building was added in 1975 and the distinct blue exterior was repainted a few years ago.

The property has showers and toilets on each floor, bike storage, communal areas and a lift servicing all floors.

Sean Collins-Jones at Hitchcock Wright & Partners, says: “The Melbourne Buildings is a unique property in Liverpool with an interesting history going back 160 years. The location and amenities on offer make it an ideal office accommodation.

“Close to both the retail and commercial districts, we are confident this property will appeal to many occupiers looking for unique office space in Liverpool’s city centre.”

Rent stands at £11,000 per floor (per annum) and can be let on a floor by floor basis.
