THE FIRST PHASE OF AHR'S MASTERPLAN AND DESIGN OF BIRKENHEAD TOWN CENTRE FOR WIRRAL GROWTH COMPANY, A JOINT VENTURE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN WIRRAL COUNCIL AND MUSE, PROPOSES TWO OFFICE BUILDINGS AS PART OF A VIBRANT NEW VISION WITHIN THE HEART OF THE TOWN CENTRE. THE SCHEME BUILDS UPON THE TOWN'S EXISTING STRENGTHS, ASSETS AND MARITIME LOCATION TO IMPROVE THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENT AND INCREASE ECONOMIC GROWTH.
The new development at Birkenhead town centre focuses on delivering a dynamic commercial quarter, high-quality residential neighbourhood and redefined Birkenhead Market, including two new BREEAM ‘Excellent’ grade A office buildings as part of the first phase of the scheme (Plot A1 and A2).
Plot A1 has a total area of 10,850m2 and will be occupied by Wirral Council, with Plot A2 at 7,400m2 to be let for commercial use. The ground floor of both office buildings will be flexible, so that they can be used by retail, leisure or food and beverage operations.
The scheme will be connected by the new public realm and open spaces that draws inspiration from Birkenhead’s rich heritage and relationship with the River Mersey.
