No smoking on the new mezzanine floor at Tobacco Warehouse

Posted by Marianne

Plans for the conversion and refurbishment of the Tobacco Warehouse in Stanley Dock, including  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring in the apartments, have been passed by Liverpool City Council.

The installation of mezzanine floors has become a popular and effective way of using headroom in old buildings that are no longer used for their original purpose, by increasing the amount of useable floor space without altering the outside appearance of the building.

As part of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site, the Tobacco Warehouse has recently been awarded £25m from the Regional Growth Fund towards the improvements planned to the Grade II listed building, which has stood derelict for many years.

Covering 36 acres and standing 14 stories high, the Tobacco Warehouse was the largest building in the world when it was constructed in 1901, with 42 bays served by seven loading bays and with the capacity to store 70,000 lbs of tobacco.

The original facade of the building will be retained and over three hundred apartments will be constructed within the original warehouse, each being double height with a mezzanine level and having a floor space of approximately 1,300 square feet. In addition to the apartments, the conversion will include space for public exhibitions, an area designated as office space as well as restaurants, bars and retail units.

Liverpool’s Heritage Market which has been held at Stanley Dock for the last 30 years is set to move to new premises on a nearby dock in February 2012, with conversion of the Tobacco Warehouse commencing shortly thereafter.
