Liverpool Waters has welcomed two start-up business tenants to The Quay, Princes Dock, with professional services firm Odin Consulting and financial services provider Epic Finance having recently moved into the city centre location.
For Epic Finance this move is a reflection of the newly-launched firm’s success to date, with further expansion planned.
The start-up plans to use this office as its base, initially focusing on a niche market with future plans to expand into the mainstream vehicle and asset finance markets.
Ty Willson, director of marketing at Epic Finance, said: “Liverpool Waters offers a great working environment right here in the city centre, bringing fantastic opportunities for us to recruit locally and allowing us to achieve our ambition of developing our business throughout the country.
“Liverpool is an ideal place to grow a new business and we foresee significant expansion over the next three years. This location will provide great opportunities for our peoples’ careers to flourish and grow with the business.”
Odin Consulting, another newly-launched business which has previously seen its staff working in Manchester and remotely, has brought its staff to the Liverpool city centre location.
The team were looking for their own office space rather than a shared or co-working environment close to the city centre, but ideally in a quiet location with light and airy office space.
Odin Consulting director, Tamlyn Stone, said: “The quality of the building, the estuary and dock views and the fact that it is close to Moorfields station and the city centre were key factors in our decision to move to Liverpool Waters
“To leave our home offices and move to a city centre base, the office needed to be somewhere inspirational where we and our clients want to travel to, and this location ticks all of the boxes.
“The use of the internal atrium, the ability to hire a variety of meeting rooms and have a car park just next door mean that our relocation to Liverpool Waters made perfect sense.”
Tamlyn added: “We plan to establish and grow our business providing professional accounting and business advice to entrepreneurial businesses using this location as the catalyst for servicing existing and obtaining new clients.
“Much of our work is conducted in our clients’ offices, so this space will provide a perfect hub to tie our business operations together.”
Liza Marco, asset manager at Liverpool Waters, part of Peel L&P, said: “It’s incredibly exciting to have these two start-up businesses joining us at Liverpool Waters, using the location as a catalyst to help their businesses grow.
“Being surrounded by so many businesses across all sizes and sectors means that these new tenants will have enviable access to a huge number of organisations and prospective customers and clients in the city centre. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for these new businesses.”
She added: “There continues to be significant demand for commercial office space at Princes Dock, which allows us to progress with our plans for the wider Liverpool Waters scheme.”
Liverpool Waters is the site of a £5.5bn development programme by Peel L&P, including commercial and residential schemes, and the site for Everton FC’s proposed new stadium.
