Queens Insurance Buildings

Queens Insurance Building Liverpool is located in the Castle Street Conservation Area, within a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The original building was designed for the Royal Bank, and completed in 1839, receiving Grade ll listing in 1974.

The cluster of buildings which make up Queens Insurance Building are organised around Queens Avenue running through the centre of the site.

Cartwright and Gross have completed a number of feasibilities and constructed works at the site for Bruntwood Estates Ltd. These projects range from commercial, retail and remodeling of the complex layout and circulation routes.

The latest scheme gained planning permission in 2015 for the remodeling of 3+5 Castle Street to create a new restaurant space for CAU. The scheme was developed to enhance the existing heritage and building fabric whilst bringing a modern restaurant to Liverpool’s traditional business quarter. The restaurant opened later that year adding to this vibrant Liverpool landmark.
