SMEs and start-ups quick to join thriving business community at Liverpool Waters

ARRIVE, Peel L&P’s flexible managed workspace at No. 10 Princes Dock, has reached 50% capacity, just one month after opening.

ARRIVE landed at Liverpool Waters in April, following on from its success at MediaCity in Salford. Since then, enquiries have been high and businesses have been quick to snap up suites.

ARRIVE No.10 Princes Dock provides over 60 desks for start-ups and small to medium enterprises, as well as a boardroom, meeting rooms, a kitchen breakout area, and focus rooms where businesses can take a suite from four desks up to 12.

Occupiers also benefit from a wide range of events and activities at ARRIVE, from wellbeing classes and lunch and learn sessions, to net-walking and community catch ups, with the added flexibility of taking part in events or using meeting rooms at both MediaCity and Princes Dock.

Half of ARRIVE’s suites are now occupied with recent tenants including cloud service and IT support provider, IT Answers, who have taken two four-desk suites. Also moving in are multi-disciplinary construction consultancy, quantity surveyors and project managers, Walker Sime, who are due to move in to their two new suites at ARRIVE next month. Walker Sime will occupy a 6-desk suite and a 12-desk suite, which is the largest suite available at No. 10 Princes Dock.

Businesses moving in to ARRIVE at Liverpool Waters will also benefit from the thriving community emerging at Princes Dock, with nearby Moose Coffee and the recently revamped Malmaison Bar & Grill offering open-plan dining with views across the busy Liverpool waterfront.

Owain Davies, Managing Director of IT Answers, said:

“After meeting the Peel L&P team and seeing the new ARRIVE office we knew we wanted to move in! The office space has a smart modern feel and the views over the waterfront and surrounding area were the cherry on the cake. The location is also perfect for traveling in and out of the city on all modes of transport.”

Mark Parker, Director at Walker Sime, said:

“Walker Sime is delighted to be taking up space in number 10. We love being in and around the dockland area of the city, having been down here for many years, as well as being part of the ongoing development plans at Liverpool Waters. Ongoing commitments with Peel L&P make it an obvious location from which to continue our growth. No 10 offers us an uber cool fit for purpose space from where we can take the business forwards.”

Rebekah Lloyd-Beere, Head of ARRIVE Managed Workspace commented:

“ARRIVE has been incredibly popular since we opened at Princes Dock last month. Demand for flexible workspaces, where companies can quickly scale up and down, is currently really high and with the community feel and networking opportunities that this kind of workplace creates, it’s a great way for small businesses to connect and feel a part of the growing business community at Princes Dock.”

Liza Marco, Senior Asset Manager at Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters said:

“We have received a huge number of enquiries about ARRIVE and it’s great to see the growing community of workers now based here. We have more Grade A office suites, desks and meeting spaces still available, and all are verified net zero, so ARRIVE really does appeal to forward thinking start-ups or businesses looking for a flexible office space on the waterfront.”
