Twickenham Studios has confirmed it will be continuing with its plan to take a 85,000 sq ft space at the former Littlewoods building in Liverpool despite a major fire at the iconic structure last month.
Developers Capital & Centric have today released new visuals of the plans and say they are “busy speaking to potential occupiers”.
There had been fears that the fire – which destroyed the roof and an upper floor of a wing of the building on Edge Lane – could put plans for the £50m redevelopment of the building in jeopardy.
But the space set aside for Twickenham Studios, the anchor tenant for Littlewoods and the UK’s oldest film studios, was fortunately untouched and they will be visiting the site in the coming days to further scope out their requirements.
Capital & Centric co-founder Tim Heatley said: “Our team was floored by the outpouring of love for our vision from the city and around the world. The building is pretty cavernous and has loads of potential – the fire doesn’t change any of that.
