A new C*-enlargement of a C*-algebra A nested between the local multiplier algebra of A and its injective envelope is introduced. Various aspects of this maximal C*-algebra of quotients are studied, notably in the setting of AW*-algebras. As a by-product we obtain a new example of a type I C*-algebra such that its second iterated local multiplier algebra is strictly larger than its local multiplier algebra.
