Expansion details for Liverpool Water’s new Central Docks district have been released. They are part of what is thought to be the biggest regeneration project in Liverpool’s history.
The £5bn Liverpool Waters project is set to regenerate the Liverpool Docks waterfront area over 30 years. Eight new plots have been announced for the Central Dock neighbourhood comprising 185,806m2 of mixed use sites, including 69,677m2 of office space.
The masterplan for Liverpool Waters was announced 10 years ago but most of the work has so far focused on a different area, the Princes Dock neighbourhood. Developers now expect to see more than £300M of construction work starting on the Central Docks site by the end of this year.
“Central Docks represents a watershed moment for Liverpool Waters. There has been an incredible amount of work done behind the scenes to get us to this point, but thanks to the positive attitude of the people of Liverpool, Liverpool City Council and other partners we are now in a position to proceed with this next exciting phase of the project,” said Liverpool Waters assistant project director Ian Pollitt.
“Liverpool Waters will not only transform the docklands and restore them to their former glory, it will leave a legacy of jobs and skills that will benefit the Liverpool City Region for generations to come.”
The details were revealed at MIPIM, the property industry’s annual exhibition in Cannes.
