We have been instructed by Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) to market 55,000 square feet of Chester’s iconic office building, HQ Chester. The announcement follows on from the news that the Council is to relocate its operations to other corporate buildings across the borough, which includes maintaining a presence in Chester.
Located at 58 Nicholas Street overlooking Chester racecourse, the scheme was developed by Liberty Properties in 2008 before CWaC moved into the building eight years ago. The mixed-use development comprises luxury apartments, hotel, restaurants and offices. The office premises have been designed to a high standard and benefit from large, air conditioned floorplates.
Speaking about the scheme, Legat Owen Director, Will Sadler, said:
Chester HQ is an exceptional scheme and the Council’s decision is timely in light of the high demand we are currently experiencing in the City Centre for quality Grade A office space. With City Place performing well in the area and sizeable requirements hovering, we anticipate strong interest in the eye-catching property, with enquiries already coming in.
We have a long standing working relationship with the Council and we look forward to using our local market expertise to ensure we re-let the space with high calibre occupiers.
