In what is a fantastic coup, we’re delighted to announce that Liverpool John Moores University has committed to take 58,000 sq ft here at Exchange Station – the biggest office deal since 2014!
We’ve been working non-stop to make sure Exchange Station was the right choice for the University, which will see 400 employees from their management, finance and HR function move here from LJMU Tower, Norton Street and Kingsway House.
LJMU’s taken a 10-year lease and will operate over four floors as Colin Davies, Director of Estate Management at LJMU, explains “Our professional service teams currently operate across multiple sites in the city, and so moving the services into one city centre location will create greater synergies between separate departments and provide the staff with excellent, high quality office accommodation in one of the city’s premier locations.”
Antonia Martin Wright continues: “Our strong belief in the city’s occupational market played a key part in our decision to acquire Exchange Station. The University’s decision to relocate its operations means that the scheme will be 65% occupied and with further deals to be announced shortly, we are confident that Exchange Station will be fully let in the coming months.”
Brian Ricketts concludes: “Few schemes in the city are able to accommodate a requirement of this size. CEG had the foresight, the confidence and the ability to realise the potential of Exchange Station and secure a significant tenant in LJMU.”
