Liverpool Waters team unveils Central Docks vision

The team behind Peel's £5bn Liverpool Waters regeneration project has unveiled more details and images for the Central Docks neighbourhood, a landmark new business and leisure district rising up to 44 storeys high.

The team behind Peel's £5bn Liverpool Waters regeneration project has unveiled more details and images for the Central Docks neighbourhood, a landmark new business and leisure district rising up to 44 storeys high.

The team behind Liverpool Waters have revealed the first glimpse of the neighbourhood at MIPIM, the world's largest property conference, and released eight new plots there for investor development. The scheme (pictured) is intended to bring life back to the former docklands site, which has sat dormant for many years.

According to the team, the eight new plots at Central Docks are already attracting interest from investors and developers, with several parties visiting Liverpool to see the opportunities on offer first hand.

This Central Docks neighbourhood is conceived as a new world-class business and leisure district, with more than 2 million sq ft of mixed-use floor space including 750,000 sq ft of quality office space and over 1,000 new waterfront apartments in buildings up to 44 storeys high. All of these new spaces will benefit from a 17-acre public park and views overlooking the River Mersey and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

The £5bn Liverpool Waters project will transform 150 acres of historic docklands, the biggest single regeneration project in the history of Liverpool and one of the biggest of its kind anywhere in the world.

Lindsey Ashworth, director of development of Liverpool Waters, said: "Liverpool Waters is a unique opportunity to invest in a world-famous waterfront and it's no surprise that this latest phase of the project has already generated interest from investors and developers.

"Our ambition has always been to create a waterfront for the world, a sustainable environment with stunning views where people and businesses can flourish together. Unveiling this southern part of the Central Docks neighbourhood marks the next chapter in the Liverpool Waters story and brings us one step closer to re-establishing Liverpool's waterfront as a gateway to the world."

Although the masterplan for Liverpool Waters was announced ten years ago, progress has so far concentrated on the Princes Dock neighbourhood, the new home of the cruise liner terminal, with the bulk of effort going on behind the scenes to secure detailed planning permissions. By the end of this year, the team at Liverpool Waters are expecting to see more than £300m of construction work starting onsite.

Ian Pollitt, assistant project director at Liverpool Waters, said: "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.

"It is great to see so many of the region's leading developers and city leaders joining us at MIPIM to showcase the opportunities on offer at Liverpool Waters and is testament to our shared commitment to re-establishing Liverpool as a global city.

"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."
