The Royal Liver Building was the purpose-built home of Royal Liver Assurance group, which had been established in 1850 and opened in 1911. Located at the world-renowned Pier Head, it is a Grade I listed building and along with the neighbouring buildings; the Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building, which forms a stunning waterfront architectural trio known as The Three Graces.
The Royal Liver Building is home to the iconic Liver Birds. In its day it was special for being one of the world’s first buildings to be constructed using reinforced concrete. Standing at 322 ft tall to the top if her spires, the Royal Liver Building was tallest storied building in Europe from its completion in 1911 until 1932, and the UK’s tallest until 1961. Having been subsequently overtaken in the height stakes by such landmarks as the West Tower, Radio City Tower and the Liverpool Cathedral, the Royal Liver Building has now been relegated to joint-fourth position.
Presently, the Royal Liver Building is a fundamental building in the UNESCO World Heritage waterfront site and is one of the most recognisable architectural icons in the city of Liverpool. At present, the Royal Liver Building is a world-class state-of-the-art commercial office space which, despite its classical exterior, houses a light, contemporary and open-plan interior with the most latest technology. With a variety of commercial tenants, their Occupier Loyalty Scheme offers a fully managed employee discount scheme, which include a selection of ‘local offers and attractions’ that’s specifically negotiated for all of the staff based in the Royal Liver Building.
