Letting agent appointed for Cheshire Lines building in Birkenhead

Cheshire Lines, the vast red brick former rail storage facility, set in the heart of Wirral’s business district is available to let, marking one of the largest and most prestigious lettings in the borough.

Smith and Sons has been appointed as agent at the iconic site and has begun marketing the ground and first floor, each occupying a floor area of over 21,000 square feet.

The location, historic nature of the building, sheer size and scale, make this a unique proposition within the Wirral commercial property landscape.

Jason Wadeson, Partner at Smith and Sons explained, “This is an important building that would make an ideal head office for an aspirational firm who are looking to make Wirral their home.

“The building commands a huge presence on a central thoroughfare. Currently, both floors are largely open plan with several ancillary rooms used for meeting and recreational space. There is huge scope to redesign and reconfigure, adapting the space to become truly fit for purpose.

“Interest in this part of Birkenhead is intensifying as the Wirral Waters scheme finally gathers pace. Cheshire Lines presents a fairly unique opportunity and we’re incredibly pleased to be appointed as commercial agent.

“We believe that the building transcends sectors and would be suitable for almost any business operating a large workforce.”

Specification at Cheshire Lines includes raised access flooring, a mix of suspended and exposed ceilings, air handling systems, raised access flooring with carpeted tiled coverings, male and female WC’s, canteen areas, connected with passenger lifts. There are 102 allocated car parking spaces.

The building is situated close to Hamilton Square train station offering excellent access to Liverpool and Wirral via Mersey Underground, Mersey Tunnels and M53 Motorway.

Jason continued, “The previous tenants have now moved out and we have access to the building and are able to carry out viewings. We would urge anyone who’s interested to contact us as soon as possible to take a look first-hand at this amazing building.”

Cheshire Lines opened in 1884 as a goods warehouse and was used so by the transport authority until 1961 when it was transformed for commercial use. It sits within the Wirral Waters development which, over the next 25 years, it is set to provide 13,500 homes and potentially create up to 20,000 jobs.
