The Client

Kingsley is proud to be retained by Baltic Creative, a ‘Community Interest Company’ (CIC) specifically created to support the growth of Creative & Digital Industries in the Liverpool City Region.

W: https://www.baltic-creative.com/

Established in the Baltic Triangle in 2009, Baltic Creative CIC was created to offer a new development model, investing in diverse spaces that catered to Liverpool’s booming creative and digital sector.

Today, Baltic Creative CIC owns 118,000 sq ft of space and counting and are playing a major role in the regeneration of the area. Everything they do is tailored towards creating the perfect conditions for creative and digital businesses to grow. Part incubator, part developer, part innovator, they employ a relaxed management style with the kind of flexible approach to contractual relationships that start-ups – especially creative ones – need.

Unlike most developers, their ‘Community Interest Company’ status ensures all profits are reinvested into their buildings, their tenants and the sector itself and because they own and manage all their own buildings, they can closely oversee this reinvestment, and ensure their tenants thrive. This model is already recognised as a best-practice approach for the sector, as well as local regeneration.
