Following acquisition of the former Marks and Spencer's department store in September 2019, the building has undergone an extensive strip out and been re-branded STOK. A full refurbishment is underway and is due to be complete early 2022.
STOK will provide up to 61,000 sqft of modern offices, retail & leisure space. The office space will front onto Prince's street with the potential for a number of retail units also onto Merseyway. Architect Linberg Design Associates and interior design agency Incognito, have been responsible for the design which includes the introduction of a central glazed atrium; the creation of two large open plan office floors, 9-person lifts, cycle storage, changing facilities and a second floor outdoor terrace.
