New visuals for the £5 billion Liverpool Waters project — which will transform Liverpool’s Waterfront — have been released to show how the 60-hectare development will look once completed.
The Liverpool Waters development — managed by Peel Land and Property (Ports) Limited — will restore the city’s northern docks, regenerating the 2 million sqm site to create a world-class, mixed-use waterfront quarter in Liverpool.
“Within this vision are five unique and dynamic neighbourhoods, running from the edge of the already established Princes Dock, nearly 2km north along the waterfront until it reaches Bramley Moore Dock, the proposed site for the new Everton football stadium,” said a statement from Liverpool Waters.
“As well as aerial views of the entire project, the CGI’s also offer a glimpse of some of Central Dock’s most impressive features, including Clarence Square, Central Park and a new cultural hub.
“The 185,860 sqm neighbourhood will also be home to family housing with private gardens as well as residential and office buildings that will offer views of Central Park and the River Mersey …
“One of the biggest changes in the plan is the relocation of Central Park, with the intention to move it closer to the River Mersey.
“Covering almost two hectares, Central Park will be one of the many jewels in Liverpool Waters’ crown and will perfectly encapsulate the distinctive mix of culture and community to be found at the Central Dock neighbourhood.”
Darran Lawless, development director at Liverpool Waters, said: “This really is a landmark time for the Liverpool Waters project.
“Following a decade of meticulous planning, we are now firmly in the delivery phase of this project, and I am excited to see these plans take shape.
“The aim of the Liverpool Waters project is an ambitious one, but one that will expand the city centre as well as creating jobs and bringing economic benefits to not only North Liverpool, but the region as a whole.”
Ian Pollitt, assistant project director at Liverpool Waters, said: “For over 10 years we have developed this project from an initial idea into the biggest single regeneration project in the history of Liverpool and one of the biggest of its kind anywhere in the world.
“It’s the comprehensive re-imagining and subsequent restoration of this derelict dockland which will reinstate the area back to its former glory. ”
